Hurricane Florence Donation Drive with NC WARN and Durham County 4-H

On October 13, join Durham County 4-H, NC WARN and the Durham Farmers’ Market as we come together to assemble flood buckets and hygiene kits for our NC family affected by Hurricane Florence. The supplies will be taken to Wilmington, Lumberton and other areas in the Eastern part of our state. Cooperative Extension centers in those areas will distribute the supplies to families who are recovering from the storm. We will provide the 5 gallon buckets and Ziploc bags. We need YOU to provide the following NEW items in their original packaging to help fill our buckets:

  • Travel sized toiletries, including toothbrush/toothpaste, soap, shampoo, deodorant, shaving cream/razors, combs, and washcloths
  • Scouring pads, scrub brushes and all-purpose sponges
  • Dish detergent
  • Household cleaners
  • 33 galloon trash bags
  • Heavy-duty gloves
  • Dust masks
  • Eyeglass protectors
  • Terry towels

Donations can be dropped off prior to October 13 at the Durham County Co-operative Extension Office, which is located at 721 Foster Street in downtown Durham. Or you can bring your donations to the Info Table at the Durham Farmers’ Market.  For more information, checkout our Facebook event.

Thank you for your generosity!
