Company donates books, $5,000 to West

WEST, TX (KXXV) -
It's been almost a year since the fertilizer plant explosion, but donations keep rolling in for folks in West. Monday, a Dallas-based gaming company presented a $5,000 check to the group.

They've been working to finish the History of West Museum and are in desperate need of funds.  Board members want people to remember more than just the blast.

Joe Mashek, Vice Chairmen of the History of West Museum says, "That's just one major thing that's happened in our community that people need to know about, the future generations need to know about and that we never forget.  But we also feel that it's very important for our future generations to know who discovered this town, how this town was built."

That's why the COO of Four Corners Inc. says donating was a no-brainer.  Knowles Cornwell says, "West has had a lot of tragedy, a lot of heartbreak, a lot of things that people all over America can live all their lives and never experience what these people have been through.  It's been a tough year for the people of West.  We're just glad to help out."

In addition to the $5,000 check, Four Corners Inc. also brought a truckload of books. These will help replenish the elementary school library destroyed last April.
