Help Raise Funds For The Hidden Pines Fire

On October 11, 2015 a fire broke out on Luecke Ranch near Smithville. This fire, known as the Hidden Pine Fire, or Luecke Fire, covered 4,582 acres and destroyed 64 homes. Bastrop County Long Term Recovery Team is helping rebuild these homes, and they need monetary donations to do so.

A Community Rises

This doc was filmed and shown in 2013. As of 2014, the Bastrop County Long Term Recovery Team has completed the rebuilding of a total of 133 homes and one playground. In addition, they have coordinated volunteers that have worked on over 1400 properties doing everything from clean up to skirting, porches, handicap ramps, address signs and bird feeders. None of this would have been possible without the volunteers that literally came from all over the country with such organizations as Christian Aid Ministries Disaster Response, Mennonite Disaster Services, NOMADS on a Mission active in divine service, World Renew and numerous churches throughout Texas.
