The police and fire departments in Peachtree City are organizing a relief effort for the countless people affected by Hurricane Harvey.
The Care for the Coast initiative came after representatives with the city met with those from church, civic and charity organizations.
“Help send relief items to those hurt by Harvey. We know everyone feels like us, and we want to do something,” said Peachtree City Police Department spokesperson Odilia Bergh.
To that end, both departments are loading tractor-trailers bound for the affected areas.
Items needed include cases of water, diapers, unscented baby wipes, hygiene items, gallon-size freezer bags, new blankets, new socks, insect repellent and non-perishable protein food items.
Money in the form of checks can be made out to: PTC AUX – 100 percent of funds will be used to fill need requests
Donations can be brought to the Peachtree City Police Department located at 350 Ga. Highway 74 South across from Gilroy’s Hardware or to fire station 81 located at Paschal and Hwy. 74 South. Items can be dropped off Monday through Sunday between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m.
Food items can also be taken to Midwest Food Bank, located at 220 Parkade Court in Peachtree City.
