Northeast Ohio Cares: Supply Drive

supplydrive 300x250 Northeast Ohio Cares: Supply Drive

Hey Cleveland.

Rebuilding efforts in Texas and Florida are underway, but it’s going to take a very long time for communities to fully recover from hurricanes Harvey and Irma.

On Tuesday September 19, we’ll will be hosting a local supply collection at WKYC’s parking lot at E 13th and Lakeside Ave in downtown Cleveland from 6:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.

United Van Lines local agent Andrews Moving Company will be on-site to help load and then transport donated supplies to areas in need. Pilot Flying J, the largest operator of travel centers in North America, is donating fuel for the trucks.

We’re calling it the “Northeast Ohio Cares: Supply Drive.”

Again – its happening on Tuesday, September 19th from 6 am-8 pm.

You don’t even have to come out of your car! We’ll come to your window or take the things you want to donate, and you can be on your way.

UPDATE:  We have added three suburban collection sites for those wanting to donate but are unable to make it downtown. Trucks and collection crews will be at the following locations from 9 am to 5 pm tomorrow:

  • FAIRLAWN: 3750 W. Market St. 44313
  • NORTH OLMSTED: 24801 Brookpark Rd. 44070
  • AURORA: 7235 Market Place Dr. 44202

Come on down to WKYC (East 13th and Lakeside Ave in downtown Cleveland) to volunteer, help out, and donate.

Let’s show survivors that northeast Ohio cares!
