It’s a supply donation drive in Houston, TX! Thousands of disabled and elderly people in Florida and Georgia were evacuated from their homes and never allowed to return for their belongings, if there was anything to even return to. Many are starting over, and we can help them!

 

There are MANY ways to help from Houston, so we’re holding this supply drive to play our part. Here are some of the current needs of those displaced:

  • 800 large Home Depot heavy-duty boxes (to pack & send all the goodies below)
  • Canned goods with pop tops (can openers are hard to handle for some and hard to come by for those who lost their homes)
  • Flashlights and batteries
  • Pet food
  • Plastic tubs with lids (these can be pre-loaded with any other items below which you’d like to donate)
  • Kitchen starter sets (these can be all or part of any of the below items)
    • Plates
    • Bowls
    • Utensils
  • Bedroom starter sets (these can be all or part of any of the below items)
    • Sheets
    • Blankets
    • Pillows
    • Pillow cases
    • Sleeping bags
  • Bathroom starter set
    • Towel set
    • Toothpaste
    • Tooth brush
    • Soap
    • Shampoo and conditioner
    • Comb/brush
    • Deodorant
  • Paper towels
  • Toilet paper
  • Tissues
  • Baby wipes
  • Diapers & wipes for both adults and babies
