Del. town collecting donations for Hurricane Florence victims
DEWEY BEACH, Del. – A Delaware town is taking matters into their own hands, when it comes to providing some relief for hurricane victims in North and South Carolina.
Dewey Beach is asking local residents to lend a helping hand as they collect various supplies for those impacted by Florence. They’re hoping to fill a U-Haul full of dry foods, hygiene and household items to bring to the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina. It’s a way for one coastal town to help another.
“Every time a storm rolls in, we worry that it could be us next time. And not that it’s the food banks and the blood banks and other things like that. If you give to them now, maybe when it happens to you others will help you,” said Dewey Beach Mayor TJ Redefer.
The town will be accepting donations until September 28th.
If you would like to help, you can drop off items as listed on the picture below to one of these two locations:
- Fenwick Island Town Hall at 800 Coastal Hwy., Fenwick Island, DE between 8 AM – 4:30 PM
- Dewey Beach Town Hall at 105 Rodney Ave., Dewey Beach, DE
