The City of Birmingham on Wednesday began collecting items for Houston and the Southeast Texas area at Boutwell Auditorium.
“Birmingham is a generous and kind city and we know that everyone including myself wants to do whatever we can to help the storm victims,” said Mayor William Bell.
Boutwell Auditorium will be the collection point from Wed., Aug. 30th through Sun., Sept. 3rd from 7 a.m.- 6 p.m. Texas authorities are specifically in need of canned goods, bottled water, cleaning supplies. In addition, canned pet food is needed for the many pets who are now displaced.
“Any donation is welcome and appreciated,” said Mayor Bell.
