The Prince William Education Association (PWEA) is stepping up to help West Virginia after the state’s recent flooding.
According to a release, PWEA is hosting a collection drive to get supplies to individuals in need in West Virginia’s decimated communities.
“At last count, at least two dozen people have lost their lives and the governor has declared State of Emergency in nearly 50 counties. Many folks have lost not only their homes, but everything they possessed in this world,” stated a release.
Here’s what is needed for the collection, from a release:
Canned ready-to-eat (no cook) food
Non-perishables (i.e. crackers, jelly, peanut butter, etc.)
Cleaning supplies (including buckets)
Paper products (paper towels, toilet paper)
Toiletries (trial sizes preferred)
Feminine hygiene products
Baby care items (diapers, food)
Children’s books, toys, and games
Gently used or new clothes
Donations can be dropped off at PWEA’s office at 8510 Bucyrus Court in Manassas, on June 30, July 6, July 7, and July 11 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., according to a release.
