All of the items we have collected will still be available to the families and individuals. However, they will not have a location to come and "shop" themselves. We ask that if you have been contacted by an individual or family requesting basic hygiene items, sleeping bags, tents, etc., that you send an email to
firstname.lastname@example.org with the family’s needs, where they evacuated from, and where they are staying. Please be as specific as possible with requests - especially clothing. We can either deliver it, or make it available at the United Way office for evacuees to pick up. Specialty items (like a wheelchair, car seat, pack & play, etc.) are available also, if we don't have the item you're looking for, we will work to source that item or purchase it.
