Response & Relief Network, part of the North Texas District Assemblies of God, reached out to Bastrop fire victims in October, 2011. R&R Volunteers spent numerous days sifting through ash and rubble looking for home owners' valuables and keepsakes. Scrapping Teams hauled off trailer loads of scrap metal on behalf of the homeowners. Robert Kennedy, director of R&R, and his daughter, Staci, had their work cut out for them in organizing the relief effort, as well as days spent amid the ruins working with the other volunteers.

People who lost their homes in the Bastrop fire could sign up for R&R's volunteer services at First Assembly of God Church in Bastrop. The church's lead pastor, Phil Woods, who also lost his home in the fire, immediately busied himself by reaching out to the hurting citizens of his community in numerous ways, including working with R&R's teams to help other fire victims.

All the work by R&R is carried out by volunteers. No paycheck can compare to the gratefulness expressed by those who lost their homes in the Bastrop Fire, and were beneficiaries of R&R's services.
