SHERMAN, Tex. -- We rely on relief organizations in times of emergency, but sometimes those organizations need some help of their own to keep going. Stephanie Brletic has more on the help one group received Tuesday.
The Grayson County Disaster Relief Organization got a much needed donation on Tuesday that will allow them to continue to lend a helping hand to those suffering.
Since last year's floods, the organization has been helping people rebuild their lives, and the ongoing support is very expensive.
But to help them out, the Grayson County Bar Association donated $3,500. Bar association representatives say it's the least they could do to help the organization.
Disaster relief executive director C.J. Durbin-Higgins says the money will allow the group to keep helping long term.
"What people don't realize is the fact that many times the long term recovery is 2, 3, 4 years out for some of these families to get their homes in working condition, pre-flood."
The bar association didn't just help the disaster relief organization on Tuesday. They also presented the Grayson County College Scholarship Association with a check for $3,500.
