Turkey Fire Dept. gathering supplies for Harvey relief efforts

TVFD is seeking donations of supplies to send down to the Harvey victims. We will gather supplies for the next 2 days, then take it or send it all south this weekend. We were so blessed to have so many come together to help us put Turkey back together after our storm, and would like to pay it forward. We would like to try and get supplies to some of the smaller coastal towns who haven’t gotten as much press (and as much help) as the big cities. Little towns like Turkey.

 

Please contact a TVFD member if you would like to drop off a donation, and we will meet you at the fire station or arrange pickup. You can also call/text 806-402-0120 or 806-402-0617.

 

At this time, these are the things needed desperately down there:

Diapers, baby wipes, diaper cream

Trash bags and ziplock baggies

Gloves, bandaids, peroxide and alcohol, bandaids, gauze, med tape
