Neighbor-to-Neighbor

Support Service!

With cases of COVID-19 now turning up in the Panhandle, Texoma and North Texas, we have turned our campaign team toward helping our neighbors and local communities who are most impacted by this pandemic.  As we all understand, we will see more cases in the days and weeks ahead, but at this time, I want to encourage everyone to follow the recommendations laid out by President Trump and his Administration, by Governor Abbott and by our local officials.  While we are all adapting to a new normal for the time being, together we will get through this.  

 

Just like many of you, Jenni and I and our family are navigating this incredibly fluid situation – reaching deep into our pantries and getting creative, making plans to continue our kids’ education from home for the days ahead, heeding the advice of medical experts, and praying often for our family, our community, our leaders, and our nation.  

 

If you are person in need, a small business owner, or one of the many working to provide for your family, we are here to help you. If any of you have questions, concerns, or needs, or if you’re looking for a way to help your neighbors, please fill out the form below and our team will be in contact right away. We take care of each other here – it is what we are known for and that is how Texas and America will weather this storm.

I especially want to thank those fighting on the frontlines to keep us healthy and safe throughout this difficult time – especially our health care providers, first responders, farmers and ranchers, energy producers, truck drivers, retailers, small business owners, restaurant workers, and the countless others serving our community and working hard to provide food and fiber to our nation and the world.
