WORTHINGTON - In keeping with the recent events of Hurricane Harvey and Worthington’s special bond with Cuero, Texas, donations for hurricane Harvey relief will be accepted beginning Sept. 11.

The Worthington trailer, through Smith Trucking, will be located in the parking lot of First State Bank Southwest on Sept. 11 throughout the week or until the trailer is full. Donations can be dropped off between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m.

The following items are needed: Nonperishable foods (granola parts, fruit bars, crackers, nuts), diapers, formula, wipes, hygiene products, paper products, cleaning supplies, shovels, rakes, laundry soap, flash lights, gloves, mosquito spray, pet food & supplies, plastic wear, trash bags, linens, towels, blankets, pillows and chain saw chains. Clothing will be accepted only if new. It is required that all items be boxed for labeling purposes or packaged in rubber containers as those can be re-used.

 

If you have donations but are unable to bring them to the trailer or to reserve a time to supervise the donation trailer, contact Susanne Murphy at 360-6699.
