The Salvation Army is also looking for donations of 1 gallon canned vegetables (ex. corn, green beans, peas, potatoes, beef stew). These items can also be dropped at one of the above locations and Firefighters United will deliver them with the other donations.
Firefighters United is a group of local firefighters that have already been down to Ware and Charlton counties to fight this massive wildfire.
According to the group, organizers have spoken with FEMA and have met with staff controlling the supply rooms for firefighters in Ware County. Donations will be collected and transported every Wednesday and Saturday to the firefighter staging area so crews working hard to put out the flames get the supplies they need. More deliveries can be scheduled if needed.
Any and all donations are appreciated.
The group is also looking for volunteers to assist in collection and delivery of items.
If you are interested in volunteering or if you want more information, please call volunteer firefighter Kyle Rausch at 912.604.3447 or event/research coordinator Katina Herrin at 912.228.2434 or 912.748.4284. You can also contact Michael at 912.657.3698.
