The County Commissioners, spearheaded by Clay Logan,the Clay County Chamber, American Legion, Mayor’s office, VFW & Auxiliary, Clay County Extension, Miller Well Drilling, Clay County Soil and Water Conservation District, and the Clay County Progress are asking for donations which will be taken to the flood-stricken area in Eastern North Carolina.
We will be collecting specific items that are needed for all flood victims. The U-Haul truck, donated by Charlie Shelton from Southern Auction, will be parked at the square on the corner of Sanderson and Church Street across the street from Nichols and Nichols Law Office. The emergency operations trailer will be located at Parts City on Hwy 64 East. A list of necessary items including new bedding, towels, pillows, pillowcases, toothbrushes and toothpaste, tarps, bungee cords and ropes, nonperishables, peanut butter, bread, granola and energy bars, baby food and formula, diapers, pet food, and supplies to name a few. Cleaning supplies such as bleach, mops, and brooms are necessary after the water recedes and the mold starts growing. Bottled water and canned food with pull tops (due to no electricity can openers will not be available to open cans).
For more information, and to be updated daily, you can call Clay Logan at 828-389-8081(home) 828-557-5723 (cell), or the Chamber at 828-389-3704.
Once the truck and trailer are loaded, the goods will leave as soon as the weather conditions permit.
