United Way collecting goods for Harvey relief efforts

United Way of Hancock County is coordinating a two-day collection of items needed for victims of Hurricane Harvey.

United Way says the collection will be held Sept. 8 and 9, from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m, at several locations in Findlay:

  • On Friday, Sept. 8, the trucks will be at Walmart, 1161 W. Trenton Ave., and Meijer, 2200 Tiffin Ave.
  • On Saturday, Sept. 9, the trucks will be at Great Scot Community Market, 2021 Broad Ave., and Kroger, 1996 Tiffin Ave.

Items accepted include: bleach, work or cleaning gloves, mops, garbage bags, bottled water, toilet paper, diapers, baby wipes and feminine hygiene products.

As patrons enter each store, they will be given a flyer listing specific items being collected. Items can then be dropped off as they exit the store.

Volunteers are being scheduled for two-hour shifts to hand out shopping lists, collect donated items and sort and load items into the truck. To volunteer, visit http://volunteerhancockcounty.org/need.

Additionally, individuals who would like to donate funds may drop off a donation at any First Federal Bank and request that the donation go into the United Way’s Harvey Relief Fund, account number 5508070000.

Checks should be made out to “United Way of Hancock County”.

Checks can also be taken to the United Way office, 245 Stanford Parkway, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Online donations can be made by credit card at http://liveunitedhancockcounty.org/harvey. All funds donated will go directly to assist flood victims.
