Robert and Doug Snokhous, two Central Texas Iron Works (CTIW) employees who were also volunteer firefighters, sacrificed their lives trying to extinguish the fire that led to the explosion at the West, Texas, fertilizer plant last month. Fourteen people in all, including first responders, died in the explosion.
In honor of Robert and Doug, CTIW has established the Steel Industry West Relief Fund for victims of the disaster and the West community. For businesses and individuals who would like to make a financial contribution, checks can be made payable to Steel Industry West Relief Fund (c/o Central Texas Iron Works, Inc., P.O. Box 2555, Waco, Texas 76702-2555).
CTIW has also joined with the Waco Foundation to accept donations for the West Volunteer Fire Department. For those who wish to elect this option, checks can be made payable to Waco Foundation, West Texas Disaster Relief Efforts Fund/Firefighter Relief (In Honor of Robert & Doug Snokhous) (1105 Wooded Acres Dr., Waco, TX 76710).
