For those who still want to donate please know that your kind donations of clothing has been overwhelming and very much appreciated. I do know that Helping Hands in New Church- a donation drop off place- states that the response for clothes being left there has been great and greatly appreciated. However, the need for cleaning supplies, linens, blankets, non-perishable food, any household item, etc. is in greater need at this time.
A huge thank you to all of those that have unselfishly given.
Hopefully today Lowe's in Pocomoke City will have their drop off boxes situated so that it is convenient for anyone in the local area to drop their donations there. Please feel free to donate any type of household item: linens, blankets, non-perishable foods, toilet paper, bathroom items- toothpaste, soap, wash rags, etc. The list is endless. So may people have lost everything- and I DO mean everything!
Crews of kind people and wonderful organizations continue to work throughout the Sanford and Saxis, Virginia areas. The damage is massive and clean up will take quite a while. Last weekend the residents were so lucky to have some students from Broadwater Academy and Cub Scout Pack 300 assisted in the cleanup. Please know there are so many more wonderful groups and individuals out there working and their kindess and hard work is so appreciated by the people that have lost so much and some don't even know how or where to begin.
Accomack County is currently working with volunteer groups to assist with debris removal caused by the storm.
If you need assistance or would like to offer assistance with debris removal and/or fallen trees, contact Mr. Fischer of Public Works at 757-787-1468.
