Gleaning For The World will collect disaster relief supplies at Sam’s Club on Ward’s Road from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily Sept. 11 through 15 in preparation for delivering disaster-relief supplies to shelters filled with evacuees later this week once Hurricane Florence reaches land on the East Coast.

Hurricane Florence is headed toward South Carolina, North Carolina and Virginia, and is expected to hit land Sept. 13. All three states already have declared states of emergency and local governments have issued instructions for residents living near the coast to begin preparing for evacuation.

Gleaning will send relief supplies to shelters in the hardest-hit areas. It is collecting non-perishable foods, baby items, personal hygiene products, and pet supplies, which will be distributed to individuals and families staying at emergency shelters.

Gleaning is also accepting financial donations specifically to help the victims of Hurricane Florence. Visit gftw.org/donate and type “Florence” in the comment section of the donation page to donate. For more information, contact Teresa Davis (434) 993-3600.
