Once again, Hoosiers have stepped up at a time of need. Donations have been pouring into southern Indiana, with the official donation site operating out of the old U.S. Census Bureau warehouse located at 700 Partol Road in Charlestown.
Starke County EMA Director Ted Bombagetti says the items of greatest need are money, non-perishable food items, paper products, gloves, heavy duty trash bags, personal hygiene products, baby items, cat and dog food, kitty litter, yard tools, gas cards, socks and underwear, tarps, and other items.
Items that are not needed include perishable, refrigerated, or frozen foods, and clothing. No volunteers are needed at this time, but Bombagetti says this could change in the future. Anyone with questions can call (574) 772-9182.
