Bottled water donations needed in Charles County

In the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew, The Charles County Volunteer Fire and EMS has reached out to the Volunteer Fire Department in the City of Lumberton, North Carolina to see what immediate assistance we can offer to help them get back on their feet. The Lumberton Fire Chief is asking for any help with providing bottled water and/or hand sanitizer would be greatly appreciated. Currently the entire city water system is inoperable and will be off line for approximately six weeks.

The Charles County Volunteer Fire and EMS is requesting the assistance of Charles County residents, businesses, church groups and citizen associations to “Help Us – Help Them.” Let us come together as a community to help another community, just as others have helped us in the past.

We are hoping the community will help by dropping off bottled water and/or hand sanitizers at their community fire station or rescue squad beginning immediately until next Thursday when all donations will be loaded for a Friday delivery to Lumberton North Carolina.

Your generosity is appreciated. Any questions please contact Vince Houchin at 240-304-9292 or Bill Smith at 240-393-1614.
