HIGH SPRINGS, Fla. (WCJB)- People in High Springs are gathering as a community to help small towns in the panhandle struggling to get a sense of normalcy in the weeks after Hurricane Michael.
McCalls TV and Sea Glass Travel is one of three drop-off locations for donations in Alachua County. Moss Caballero says he wanted to help the volunteers in High Springs because the donations are going to small towns hit hard by Hurricane Michael. Caballero explains "That's the connection we have to it. We wanted to make sure these items go to the smaller towns especially living in a smaller town ourself."
Temperatures in the panhandle have already dropped below freezing in spots and with more cool mornings expected as winter approaches, people left out in the elements will need winter clothes, blankets, scarves, and non-perishable foods. If you have a large number of donations to drop off, Farnell Cole, the organizer of the effort, will take his trailer to you. You can contact him through email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Some of the people displaced by Hurricane Michael are children. That's why McCalls Tv and Sea Glass Travel is partnering with the High Springs Playhouse and High Springs Community School to bring toys to the panhandle for the holidays. They would like new or lightly used toys to send to kids in areas hit hard by Hurricane Michael.
