One of the greatest things about the ArkLaTex, in my opinion, is the way we come together to help those in need.

People here are always willing to do what it takes to help others. Now, Zack Ellis needs our help.



Zack was involved in a senseless accident several years ago, and that accident has taken a toll on his quality of life. He has been through many surgeries, which include: 3 brain surgeries, 2 back surgeries, a shoulder surgery, chest tubes, and an ear surgery. He still suffers from nerve damage on the left side of his body.


Zack has had to leave the state for further health care. He’s recently been under the care of a Doctor out of Houston, Texas. We are very pleased with this Doctor as he is much more proactive in helping with Zack’s recovery. He was given great care in Louisiana, but it was time to move on to a Doctor that would take the reins and get Zack’s process moving along a little quicker. Keep in mind that this senseless accident occurred in November 2010, and Zack is still dealing with the affects EVERY SINGLE DAY!!

Tonight (8-29) there will a benefit concert for Zack in Minden, LA. The event takes place at Habacu's Mexican Restaurant beginning at 7PM. We'll have live music from Brandon Gonyea of Black Water Bride, Lacy Ann Cavalier, and Jared Mourad. Of course you can make donations to help Zack and his family at the event.



If you can't go, you can still help! You can go to Zack's fundraiser page to make a donation.

He also has a benefit account set up at Minden Building and Loan Bank in Minden.
