Baldwin Country drop off points for Harvey relief

Posted: Updated:

FOX10 News is continuing our supply drive for victims of Hurricane Harvey.

It's called "FOX10 News: Together for Texas."

We're partnering with the Volunteers of America, or VOA,  to collect cleaning items and other non-perishable goods.

Eastern Shore Toyota and Eastern Shore Hyundai are two drop off spots where the Volunteers of America are collecting mops, detergent and other supplies to send to Texas.

It's all part of the FOX10 \News: Together for Texas campaign.

John St. George with Eastern Shore Toyota and Eastern Shore Hyundai said, "We were contacted by Volunteers of America to be a collection point for the relief effort for the Harvey hurricane victims and, as you can see, the response has really been overwhelming.   This local area has personally been impacted in the past by some storms of this magnitude and the outreach has just been nothing short of heart warming."

In the City of Mobile, you can drop off supplies at Volunteers of America headquarters at 600 Azalea Road.

Organizers in both Mobile and Baldwin counties say it's important to lend a helping hand.

St. George said, "The owner, Shawn Esfahani, has always instilled in me, as well as the rest of the organization, that we give back.  We're in a for-profit business, but the name of the game for us is giving back to the local community." 

The VOA is asking for the following items:

Mops
Buckets
Shovels
Washing Detergent
Dish Washing Liquid
Handi-Wipes or Reusable Wipes
Sponges
Disinfectants (Lysol or Bleach)
Heavy Duty Trash Bags
Work Gloves
First Aid Items/Kit
Insect Repellant
Diapers/Wipes
Feminine Hygiene Products
Undergarments for Women and Children
Box Fans
Walmart, Target, VISA Gift Cards up to $20.00 value
