"What we ask for is blood". We're also humbled to see the love and tremendous support our fellow Central Texans show when devastation strikes.We've already begun to see an outpouring of support from our local community members who want to do anything they can to help our neighbors across the country.

"Not in a thousand years, would I ever think that this would happen", said Cecilia Santos, Santa Maria resident.
