Cody Garrett spends spring break helping wildfire victims

Spring break is often a chance to get away and relax for a few days. For college students, it provides a time for leisurely activities away from the chaos of school. Cuero High School graduate and current Texas A&M student Cody Garrett chose to spend his time helping ranchers in need in north Texas following wildfires.

“The thing that led me to my decision was I grew up in an agricultural community and family,” Garrett noted. “To see those ranchers where that’s their source of income, everything they worked for their whole life was burned up. I felt like I could collect donations from around Cuero because I know they’re in a time of need.”
