Here are the items we are collecting still:
-Women personal hygiene items
-non-peresishable food cans/boxes
**NOTE that all other items such as clothing and bottle water for example, are not being accepted at the distrubution center we will be going to**
Large Animal Items
-Bandages for Equines and other Large Animals
MISCELLANEOUS NOTES: We need a few volunteers to help us sort items, log items in, and organize items properly in the trails/trucks, on Monday, October 1 and Tuesday, October 2 as well as Thursday, October 4 from 6PM-7:30PM(maybe a little less) here at NAH!
We also need another trailer preferabley a bumpter pull type.

Here is an important message from our friends from Francis, Florence and Friends Equine Rescue (click on their name to visit their website) as well as a Wanted Items List:
This message is from Elizabeth Carr, local Rescue Group Representative here in the Guilford County Area:
First and foremost, on behalf of all of us here at FFF Equine Rescue we are deeply touched by everyone who has reached out and made donations towards the devastaed areas in our Coast. We would like to let the High Point community know that our rescue group is working alongside other Large Animal Rescue Groups assisting them with rescue operations. Some of our volunteers are out in the affected areas performing water rescues with horses that have been in chest deep water levels for more than 24 hrs. While some others are performing clean up duties at our facility. Once our facility is cleaned up, we will be able to be a holding facility for displaced horses and other large animals until we are able to re-unite them with their owners. Which at that point we will need more donations for the upkeep. We are also taking care of our 30 horses we have in our program prior to the arrival of Hurricane Florence.

NAH has teamed up with his clinic in order to distribute the items we hope with your help we can raise in the next few days/weeks for the affected people and pets in our coastal area.
Per Dr. Z him and his family were evacuated and are in the Clayton, NC area awaiting clearence to return home and access damages to their home and the Hospital. Once this is done we will connect with him and plan more clearly our exact delivery dates as we also await for the roads to re-open.
