We have a driver, who's family lost their home due to a fire this weekend. It started in the master bedroom and thank God his wife woke up in time to get herself and the children out safely. They lost everything, nothing was salvageable. They have found a place to rent, but it is not furnished and their needs are tremendous. They have three small children, ages 2, 4 and 5. They have little clothing, no beds, no kitchen ware, no furniture, toys or basic personal items. The list is endless. Today, while I was there, I contacted their bank and asked if they would open a savings account in Denver and Melissa's name. Those who want to help one of our own can send contributions of any amount to Denver and Melissa Banister c/o First National Bank P.O. Box 290 Gordon, NE 69343. The bank was more than happy to open this account. Now we need your help. Denver and Melissa are good and caring people. Let us show our support as bull haulers and rally around those who need it! Thanks for your generosity. Signed, Everyone at Prime Time. REPLY REPLY WITH QUOTE

Thanks Terry, great advice. Melissa gave me her grandma's address for the time being to send care packages to. It is, Denver and Melissa Banister, 102 S Main, Merriman NE. 69128. They wanted me to make sure to thank all those that are trying to help! And I also would like to take time to personally thank, Terry, Shawn, Frank, Tim, Jason and Andy. Thanks for taking the time and helping. And to those who I have not personally talked to......! THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart! May God Bless each of you!

Thanks for yours and Tim's help Barb. The best thing anyone could send right now is cash. Just for the simple reason of not doubling up on items, and it let's them purchase to their taste! Even if it is as small as $5 or $10 dollars, every little bit helps. If you are still wishing to send a care package, I am in no way discouraging that. So I will be talking to them again today sometime and will try and get a list of stuff that is immediately needed. Again, Thanks for every ones help! Signed Brian at Prime Time REPLY REPLY WITH QUOTE

First, Brian - it is nice to see some people positively and professionally helping someone else!  You win my vote.

Secondly,  My heartfelt sympathy to the Banister's - this industry is stressful for all family members without the added burden of having this happen in their life!  Hang in there Banister Family!!!!  We all care!

Hey Brian, I am really saddened to hear about this family.
I am an old flatbedder who hit some hardtimes and ended
up back in the military for a short time and hoping to get into
livestock hauling soon.
My wife and I will be sending a check as soon as I can.
I hope things start looking up for the Banister family soon.
Thank God they are all alright.
Sincerely
SGT Rickey Hull
