Texas Hurricane Relief…

The North Beach VFD is donating toiletries and equipment to Fire Departments and relief workers in the hurricane stricken areas of Texas that are in dire need of supplies. We invite the community to bring items to our firehouse as we are a collection point for donations.  The following are items the workers in Texas are looking for:

Tooth brushes and toothpaste
Shovels

Please bring donations by Monday, September 25, 2017.  Furthermore, we are interested in speaking with someone in the shipping industry that could help us get the donated items to their destination in Texas.  Your support is greatly appreciated. Please message the North Beach VFD Facebook page for questions. Thank you.
