The Woodstock Police Department is partnering with First Baptist Church of Woodstock and U-Haul (Woodstock) to host a donation drive locally for South Georgia tornado victims.
Convoy of Care and WSB-TV are asking for your help in collecting infant and adult personal hygiene supplies (diapers, wipes, soap, etc.), non-perishable food items, gloves, yard tools (all new and unopened), and gift cards (Target, Walmart, Home Depot).
Donations can be dropped off to a pod located at the First Baptist Church of Woodstock campus; at the southeast corner of the FBCW parking lot off Gunnin Road near Trickum Road today (Thursday) and tomorrow (Friday) from 7 AM to 7 PM.
A representative from the Woodstock Police Department will be onsite to assist you with unloading.
As needs have rapidly increased, Woodstock and nearby residents are being called on to help neighbors in South Georgia. Donations will be taken to a drop-off location in Atlanta for delivery to South Georgia on Friday evening.
