Helping Western North Carolina

1130150943bAt the Fall Conference the first week of November, we asked for your donations to help North Carolinians affected by floods in the eastern part of the state.

This last week of November, we’re asking for your donations to help North Carolinians affected by fires in our western mountains, as well as in the mountains of east Tennessee.

Catherine Carter, our volunteer Rep for Jackson County, reports that the Center for Service Learning at Western Carolina University is collecting donated supplies for the firefighters who have battled these wildfires for several weeks now. They especially need the following:

beef jerky – lip balm – eye wash – wool caps/toboggans – bandannas – protein and breakfast bars – boot socks – travel-size hand wipes – travel-size hand lotion – travel-size Gold Bond foot powder – handwarmer gloves

Please mail these items to:

Center for Service Learning
Western Carolina University
90 University Way
Belk 273
Cullowhee, NC 28723

Cash donations can be made to the American Red Cross, as well as other service organizations, including the Dollywood Foundation’s “My People Fund.”

Thank you for helping our neighbors in this time of need.
