Do you want to help the victims of Hurricane Harvey?
Residents of the Gulf Coast have sat watching Hurricane Harvey pound the Texas coast all weekend. Flood waters have literally submerged major areas of Houston and thousands are left with homes in ruin. This hits very close to the residents of Jackson County. We don’t NEED to help, we HAVE to help. Some of the major needs for Texas victims right now are bottled water, and cleaning supplies. Thousands will return home to the muck we experienced during Hurricane Katrina, and we all know the monumental task of cleaning up that is ahead. JaxCoHome.com is calling all Jackson County residents and surrounding areas to join in relief efforts by joining “Project Flood Bucket.” Operation #JaxCoHomeRelief
Important: Do not donate old clothes!
JaxCoHome has partnered with 3 strategic drop off locations in Jackson County. You may drop off supplies or assembled “flood buckets” at any of these locations. Assembled flood buckets preferred!
Jackson County drop off locations:
First United Methodist Church, Pascagoula, 2710 Pascagoula Street – Map
Heritage Funeral Home, Moss Point, 9721 Hwy 63 – Map
Ocean Springs Lumber, Ocean Springs, 1611 Government Street – Map
Bring bottled water, supplies for buckets, OR ASSEMBLED flood buckets to any of these locations by Sunday, September 3rd, afternoon. Transport will be taking supplies early next week. We invite you to include a personal note to the recipient. Share words of encouragement that you feel they need to hear during this tragic time. Knowing that their Gulf Coast neighbors are thinking of them may be the boost they need to get through the recovery phase. Be sure to enclose in a ZipLoc bag so not to get ruined during delivery. Let the victims know we are thinking about them here in Jackson County!
Some other suggestions you can include in your flood bucket (as long as the lid closes securely):
- A Walmart gift card
- Scouring pads
- Fully wrapped and bagged candy or treats
This is our turn to give back Jackson County! Let’s help our brothers and sisters in Texas. Pay it forward and pay it back!
