Pender County distribution center needs volunteers


PENDER COUNTY, NC (WWAY) – Pender County needs help getting donations to the flood victims who need them.

“Residents have been generous,” said Pender County Emergency Manager Tom Collins. “Pastor Ted Mercer at Gateway Community Church needs volunteers to distribute donations in Atkinson and near the homes of our flood victims.”

Mercer said the distribution center, located at the church at 416 W. Bridger St. in Burgaw, will not accept donations of clothing. But they desperately need volunteers who will go to Atkinson Baptist Church to distribute more donations.

“It has been a blessing to help those in need in our community,” said Mercer. “Our volunteers need assistance and we would appreciate the help.”

Pender County Emergency Management will post updates on their Facebook page.
