So yeah it is supposed to be wordless wednesday(that post is scheduled for later in the day) but I wanted to post up a variety of information on where to donate items to tornado victims in the Triangle. I have had lots of people asking about where to donate and I have been wondering myself. I want to take items somewhere that I know they are going to the victims. Not just Goodwill where there is a backlog. Here is some info the nice people at the Work/Life department of SAS posted up for us:
- Volunteer with or donate to Triangle Red Cross .
- http://www.wakegov.com/ is providing information for people who want to provide help and or services – very informative for clean-up, as well.
- The Salvation Army is most in need of the following items to assist with the disaster: canned food, tarps, diapers, toiletry items, baby formula, cleaning supplies, clothing and furniture. Items can be brought The Salvation Army at 215 South Person St. in downtown Raleigh. Or, click here to contribute financially online.
- Inter-Faith Food Shuttle began delivering food Monday to non-profit agencies across the Triangle. IFFS staff members are are using cell phones to assess the needs of the 212 partner agencies, rerouting trucks and sending food to soup kitchens, pantries and other emergency agencies so they can feed victims of the storm and members of the community experiencing food hardship. To make food donations, please call Don Eli (919) 609-0939. To make monetary donations, please donate online www.foodshuttle.org
- Mechanics and Farmers Bank in Raleigh has set up a disaster relief fund specifically for Shaw University(the Univeristy is closed for the remainder of the semester due to damage). Tax deductible contributions may be sent to: Shaw University, Disaster Relief Fund, Mechanics and Farmers Bank, 13 E. Hargett Street, Raleigh, NC, 27601.
- The North Carolina Community Foundation will take disaster-relief donations online through the NCCF website or by downloading a contribution form from the site and mailing or faxing it to NCCF offices. (The fax number is 919-828-5495. The form or checks can be mailed to NCCF at 4601 Six Forks Road, Suite 524, Raleigh, NC 27609).
- NEED SOME EMOTIONAL SUPPORT OR KNOW SOMEONE WHO DOES?
Wake County Human Services is reminding citizens of mental health resources available to storm victims.
