The First Baptist Church of Ganado will hold a fundraiser for the hurricane relief efforts in Refugio County. The money will be collected and presented to Refugio when the Bobcats travel to Ganado to play the Indians on October 13.

“I think some of the money that we would’ve spent in Jackson County if Hurricane Harvey had shifted further north, could go toward the rebuilding efforts in Refugio,” said Rev. Ryan Carpenter, fundraiser organizer and pastor of First Baptist Church of Ganado.

The money collected will go to Good Samaritans Ministries of Refugio County. Information can be found on the Refugio County website, under the Hurricane Harvey tab, listed as City of Refugio.

To make a donation, visit and click on the top tab labeled “Refugio Relief Fund.”

Anyone with questions is encouraged to call the church office at 361-771-2403.
