WITN studio in Greenville now a drop-off location for Hurricane Florence donations

The recovery from Hurricane Florence is going to take a long time, especially in areas that were hit the hardest, that is why WITN and the Red Cross of Eastern NC continue to push the effort to help those communities in need.

Starting right now, WITN is an official drop off location for donation items for Hurricane Florence victims.

At our Greenville studio, located at 275 East Arlington Blvd., PODS has graciously donated one to help with the collection. We hope to fill up the pod at least once, and quickly, in order to distribute items still needed in some of the hardest hit areas.

The Red Cross says the donations needed most are water, hygiene items and cleaning supplies listed below:

Safety gear
Work gloves
Bleach
5-gallon buckets
Scouring pads
Scrub brushes and Sponges
Towels
Heavy duty trash bags
Paper towels
Laundry detergent
Dish soap
Liquid hand soap
Bottled water
Gallon water
Children and adult diapers
Baby wipes

The Red Cross asks that you do not donate used clothes at this time. If you do want to donate clothing they ask for NEW socks and underwear.
