Written by: Elizabeth Blevins

I’ve been working on new articles but for now the blog is best used for sharing information.  There are still so many people in need, so many opportunities for the community to help, and so many thank you’s to be given.

Thank you to all of the crews working to restore power in very hazardous conditions.  We appreciate you!

South View High School is one of two shelters in the area accepting pets.  They currently need power strips and fans.  The pets are being housed behind the high school in a bay with no A/C.  The room is small enough a portable A/C would work too.

Our area has been hit hard with the effects from Hurricane Florence. More than 1,500 people have been evacuated, with the fear of losing homes and property due to extensive flooding. Many of these residents are still in temporary shelters. We;re hoping YOU can help us make their lives a little bit easier while they recover and rebuild. We’ll be collecting basic necessities to help ease their process. Join us Friday, September 21 at Westwood Shopping Center from 12p – 6p. If you cannot make it during that time, we invite and encourage you to visit one of the many other drop off locations at your convenience.  Click Link for more info
