All of East Texas was saddened when Lindale Volunteer Fireman Joe Yeakley was severely hurt while fighting a residential fire on Jan. 16. Mr. Yeakley is stable, but still critical at Parkland Medical Hospital in Dallas.

It's has come to the attention of the Lindale Fire Department that there are potentially fake benefits accounts for Joe Yeakley that have been set up.

So, if you would like to help the family monetarily, please make sure that you ONLY make donations at Texas Bank & Trust. Of course you can make your donations at any Texas Bank & Trust location.

Donations can also be sent to the Lindale Fire Department at P.O. Box 8, Lindale, Texas 75771.

Please continue praying for Mr. Yeakley for a speedy recovery.
