The Tucson community is responding to calls for help from the flood-devastated areas of south Texas.
The warehouse offices of World Care, a Tucson disaster-relief nonprofit, are in full disaster-relief mode.
"We want to address the first, most immediate needs,” said Executive Director Courtney Slanaker, “where people are still living in shelters and are still not able to get back in their homes. So we are going to send the most needed items, which are those hygiene and cleaning supplies.”
There are more than 20 Tucson drop-off sites set up, including all Vantage West Credit Union locations.
“We’re hoping to send two 52-foot semi-trucks down of supplies down that were collected by the Tucson community,” said Slanaker.
A caravan of trucks is departing this coming Sunday for Texas. You can drop off donations at:
