Local Businesses Host Cookout For Evacuees

Hurricane evacuees staying in Lufkin had a nice break today thanks to several area businesses.

KTRE and Home Depot sponsored a cookout at the Ellen Trout Zoo today for the evacuees.

St. Cyprian's Church, The Hotel Group, The Texas Chef's Association plus many other area businesses donated items for the cookout.

The Home Depot also took the opportunity to distribute the many items that were collected at their store.

The 119 evacuees that were fed also met many of the KTRE personalities who were on hand to help.
