Donations pouring into Amite Community Center
The Amite City Community Center is being used as a receiving and assembly station for donations set to be delivered to Dickinson, Texas.
The Amite City Chamber of Commerce has been in contact with the Dickinson Chamber of Commerce over the last few weeks and have arranged to send donations to victims of Hurricane/Tropical Storm Harvey. The donations will be organized and put into 5-gallon buckets or purple oyster sacks, including blankets, towels, cleaning supplies, and bags with personal hygiene items. The donations will be loaded on an 18-wheel trailer and delivered no later than Monday, September 18. Along with the donations, half of a trailer shipment of water will be sent to provide clean drinking water to the victims.
Donations will be accepted at the community center through September 14.
