The Tunnel to Towers Foundation is hosting a collection drive to benefit Hurricane Harvey victims. Trucks will be set up at several locations in the Greater Danbury area Wednesday, including at the radio station.
The New Fairfield drop off site was moved indoors because of the threat of rain. The new collection location will be in the New Fairfield Senior Center Community Room.
The organization kicked off the collection drive over the weekend at Faith Church. COO John Hodge says people were so generous they already filled a truck, and will have to send a 2nd truck to Faith Church tomorrow to collect items that couldn't fit, plus what ever else is donated. They collected so much bottled water, it was too heavy a load for the truck.
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)
