MICHIGAN, (WNEM) -

Following devastating and deadly wildfires in several states, local volunteers are looking for donations to bring to the ranchers and farmers impacted by the flames.

Hundreds of thousands of acres were destroyed when strong winds and dry conditions fueled fires in Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas and Colorado.

The fires killed seven people, destroyed homes and killed thousands of livestock.

Now you have the chance to help.

Farmers, ranchers, truck drivers and businesses have come together to gather donations.

Items being accepted include: Milk replacers, bagged feed for livestock, salt blocks, fence supplies (wire, t-posts, insulators, barb wire, etc.), hay, straw, halters, lead ropes, you name it. Most anything livestock related is needed.
