Lancaster, PA, October 23, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- With the incredible generosity of Shawnee Trucking Co. (covering transport and associated expenses), and the cooperation of the Borough of East Petersburg, PA the East Pete Responds "Pilot Project" to fill and transport a truck with hurricane relief supplies, is under way. The supplies will be going to North Carolina, into some of the hardest hit areas with countless homes, schools, businesses and vehicles having been destroyed or nearly destroyed by deep flood water.
It was originally planned to send relief supplies to New Hanover County North Carolina. Wilmington, North Carolina (and Wrightsville Beach) has been the second home of the founder of East Pete Responds since the early 1980's. Their oldest daughter chose to make her life there (after college) at the other end of Wilmington just one quarter mile from the water near Carolina Beach. The family evacuated two days before the eye of the storm made landfall. A week out it was obvious how fortunate New Hanover County was in comparison to Pender County due to the river systems and record flooding. It was then decided to send the truck filled with relief supplies to Pender County North Carolina Disaster and Emergency Management.
The "Items Needed" list under the "Pilot Project" page on the website (www.EastPeteResponds.com) lists items being requested. They can only accept the items on this list.
The "Where to Donate" page under the "Pilot Project" page gives the details of where and when donations can be dropped off through Wednesday November 7, 2018.
