Owner of Out West in Dodge City donated an immense amount of clothes and accessories to Clark County wildfire victims.

Many Clark County residents were left with just the clothes on their back after the recent wildfire massacre. After losing nearly everything, it’s hard to find a way to get back up on your feet. Thankfully, a humble store owner with the capability to help went above and beyond.

Vaughn Nash, owner of Out West in Dodge City, donated clothes, purses, coats, jackets, vests, kids clothes and many more items to assist those affected by the wildfires.

“I was raised on a farm and ranch country,” said Vaughn. “I had gone through a tornado when I was young, and I know what it was like to need help.”

Vaughn stated that he personally knows multiple Clark County residents affected by the wildfires, which is one reason he decided to help.

“They’re good working folks and they needed some help and that’s what I did,” he said. “I was just glad to be able to do it.”

Many of the items Vaughn donated were from him his own personal store merchandise. As a humble man, Vaughn requested that the monetary value of the donations not be shared with the public. 

“It’s just a time of need and you step up and meet the need if you can, and I was able to,” he said.
