A collection drive to gather items for Hurricane Harvey victims isn't the end of work for the Tunnel to Towers Foundation. COO John Hodge says after Wednesday's collection, their volunteers will hit the road with the donations.
He says the decision on how long volunteers will be down there will be based on donations received through their website. Hodge noted that every penny will go back out for relief efforts and will not be redirected anywhere else.
Some of the next steps for volunteers after arriving in Texas will be to help with mold remediation, gutting out homes and mucking out homes.
The collection drive is taking place on Wednesday, September 6th from 7am to 6pm. Collections sites are located at:
-WLAD/98Q, 98 Mill Plain Road in Danbury
-Faith Church on the border of New Milford and Brookfield
-Senior Center Community Room in New Fairfield
-IGA in Sherman
The emergency items needed are:
-Toiletries (ex soap, shampoo)
-Canned and bagged food
-New socks (NO OTHER CLOTHING ITEMS WILL BE ACCEPTED)
