If you are in or near the area where people who have been evacuated are, or know someone who is, the following is a list of things they will need right now. This is how you can help. Please forward to anyone who can help.
LIST OF THINGS PEOPLE NEED
Hand sanitizer (essential when conserving water or shortage of water)
Aspirin / Tylenol / Advil
First aid kits
Plastic utensils (spoons and forks >> no knives)
New shoes >> sneakers of various sizes / Flip flops
Socks of various sizes = men’s/women’s
(No razors for obvious reasons)
Toys for the children to occupy their time, coloring books, etc. (NO large things, no stuffed animals >> these are too large for a family or mom to carry around – small things, cards, etc).
Clean clothing for children, women, men. (These can be donated from people so worn, not old.) **If you would not wear the clothing yourself DO NOT GIVE**
Lysol, cleaning supplies (U will need volunteers to keep your premises clean so as to avoid anyone from becoming ill).
DON’T FORGET: People need Plastic Totes to keep and carry their items.
Personal hygiene items
Women’s toiletry kits
Totes or plastic bags (not grocery store bags, but sturdy bags).
Only ready to use infant formula. NO POWDERED formula.
I will keep adding information here. Stay posted. SHARE THIS.
