Wednesday, April 30, 2014 1:00 AM
Donations for those affected by Monday's tornado are being accepted at two Philadelphia churches and one real estate office.
The Sanctuary of Philadelphia on Hospital Road will accept donations beginning today (Wednesday) at 10 a.m.
They will take the donated supplies to centers and to those helping clean up the rubble.
The clothing will be divided by sizes and placed in boxes and bins and given to those who are in need.
If you have sizes and names of those that are in need please text to 601-692-4476, Lori Jolly, and as soon as we have the clothing ready we will deliver to those in need, she said.
Anyone who would like to help by volunteering, may also contact her.
The supplies that are needed include new and used clothing, bottled water, gallon water, hand sanitizers, styrofoam coolers, baby wipes, non-perishable food for adults and children, toiletries, pillows, blankets, storage bins or boxes and anything that can help those who have lost so much.
In addition East Philadelphia Baptist Church on east Main Street is accepting donations as is Martin Real Estate on Byrd Avenue.
