Thanks, The Stir Crazy Moms
Helping the Youngest Tornado Victims-Spread the WordAre you looking for a way to help out with tornado relief, but you aren't certain how? While the immediate needs are, of course, food and shelter, can you imagine being a child and not only not understanding why you cannot go home, but not having toys, books and stuffed animals? The youngest tornado victims need our help!!! A Durham Mom started an email request for new or gently used toys and books for children in need, and that has grown into an even larger effort. We will be collecting gently used toys, books and other children's items, as well as diapers, sealed containers of formula and other unused baby hygiene items for children impacted by the storm. These will be distributed to shelters and other agencies who will make sure those who are in need receive them.
If you are willing to volunteer to help with this effort, whether to help pick up and sort items, deliver them to the agencies that need them, or act as a neighborhood drop-off location, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please help spread the word!
