Volunteers and financial donations still needed, along with certain individual items
The response to our recent flood disaster has been overwhelming, and the Copper Country cannot be thankful enough for the support that’s been received. However, as of now, volunteers have reached a point where enough normal supplies are on hand. Officials are now asking that the flow of general donations be reduced or stopped with a few exceptions. We know of several additional semi loads coming, but we’re now asking that any additional large deliveries that are planned please be put on hold, unless the items being donated are dehumidifiers, box fans or large equipment that can be used for excavating, demolition or reconstruction.
Volunteers are still needed. The recovery effort is transitioning from initial clean-up to the rehab and reconstruction phase, and additional volunteers are a vital part of that effort.
To donate money, please go to coppercountrystrong.com/donate.
On Friday at 4 p.m. the Flood Relief Supply Distribution at Dee will be closing. Those in need of supplies are asked to stop by before it closes to get what’s needed for the weekend. Next steps for the distribution center are being evaluated, and will be announced as soon as possible.
