Here in NC, we know how tough it is to get back on your feet after a major hurricane, so we are teaming up with AGT Carriers, a local trucking company, and the United Way of Coastal Carolina to get supplies to FL.
AGT will have a truck set up in the parking lot of the Food Lion at Highway 17 & McCarthy Blvd, New Bern on Tuesday, September 19th from 11am-7pm.
Please stop by and donate what you can. Your donations will go to the United Way of Northeast Florida (Jacksonville area). They had lots of flooding and were surprised by the storm damage in that area.
The list of items they could use include:
New blankets and sheets
Toiletries, including paper goods
Feminine hygiene products
Diapers (children and adult)
Non-perishable food items
Cleaning Products and Kits
No bottled water is needed, as power is being restored to the area, but the clean-up will take a while and some folks lost everything. Anything you can do to help would be much appreciated.
The American Red Cross is helping the people affected by Hurricane Harvey and Irma. Shelters are open, truck loads of supplies are being distributed and volunteers in place.
The Salvation Army is ready to provide physical, emotional and spiritual care to hurricane survivors and relief workers. Salvation Army disaster teams from across the country are mobilizing and, even after disaster response efforts are over, The Salvation Army will remain in communities impacted by this terrible storm, supporting long-term disaster recovery efforts and providing ongoing assistance to those in need.
With Hurricane Irma bearing down, ASPCA responders have leapt into action. We’ve transported hundreds of animals out of Irma’s path and established an ASPCA mega emergency shelter in South Carolina where more than 600 shelter animals can be transported, cared for and eventually placed. What’s more is that we have responders in Florida, hunkered down with local authorities, so that they can assist as Irma makes landfall and in the immediate aftermath of the storm. 100% of your donation today will go to the ASPCA’s Field Investigation and Response Fund. This fund is used to support all of the ASPCA’s life-saving efforts for animals in disaster and cruelty situations.
Austin Pets Alive! has been helping shelters in the direct line of Hurricane Harvey. We’ve been working with these shelters to transport as many pets as possible to APA! As we continue to care for the animals we have already saved, we have to prepare for even more animals who will need us in the coming days.
