Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill: #HurricaneFlorence organizers with A JUST FLORENCE RECOVERY/ OPERATION AIRDROP are coordinating multiple flights daily bringing hurricane relief supplies from RDU into severely impacted areas like #Lumberton and #WilmingtonNC
They are in touch with folks in those communities, who have stated there is a desperate, urgent need for infant formula, especially in #Lumberton. Clean water is accessible, and liquid is heavy, so powdered formula is preferable.
If you can drop some off Tues 9/18 or Wed 9/19 that would help tremendously. Drop off is at TAC AIR BUILDING, 1725 E International Dr, Morrisville, NC 27560.
Other needs are for disposable baby bottles with liners (due to lack of sterilization facilities) and diaper rash cream (due to humidity combined with limited washing facilities). Use the 'no parking' area in front of the building where supplies are being held for unloading.
Non-perishable foods & basic first aid supplies are also urgently needed so please donate what you can, but a top priority right now for Lumberton is powdered infant formula. Bottled water is not needed since it’s too heavy to fly efficiently. Thanks for helping out & sharing.
Many people want to know more information before they donate to a community-led relief effort. Here's word from Tim Pulliam (@TimABC11) of ABC Eyewitness News who reported on-site earlier today.
#OperationAirdrop organizers need a cell phone booster immediately at the TAC Terminal (1725 E International Dr, Morrisville NC). Efficient coordination is nearly impossible without it. Please share with anyone you know who may be able to get one out to them today.
End of day update from the #OperationAirDrop coordinators at the TAC Terminal: 27,956 lbs of supplies were shipped out of Raleigh on 60 flights today! More donations are needed tomorrow, the list of items needed most urgently is here: docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d…
Info for helping out with #OperationAirDrop out of the Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill area can now be found at triangleflorence.org
Day 2 update: the team of volunteer pilots and organizers airdropped 55,148 lbs of relief supplies on 107 missions to 10 airports. That's a staggering amount & is crucial to folks surviving week one after #HurricaneFlorence. More food & supplies are needed so please donate!
