WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — As the temperatures continue to climb this week, it’s important to remember to stay hydrated.

It’s also important to remember others in the community who may need your help during this heat.

Part of the mission at the Good Shepherd Center in Wilmington is to feed the hungry and shelter the homeless.

During this time of the year, the center tries to give bottles of water to folks who come by for meals, the day shelter and to those staying overnight.

The Good Shepherd Center does have bottles of water to give out, but said they can always use more donations.



“It is very important in this weather to stay hydrated, and when we’re serving, you know, over 200 people a day, that’s a lot of bottles of water,” Good Shepherd Center Senior Development Director Jane Birnbach said.

The Good Shepherd Center is currently looking for donations of water, sunscreen, bug spray, and men’s flip flops for shower shoes.
