Lorain councilman collecting supplies for victims of Hurricane Harvey

LORAIN, OH (WOIO) - Lorain Councilman Angel Arroyo Jr. has set up drop sites for people to donate supplies to provide relief to Hurricane Harvey victims.

He is asking for cases or pallets of water, non-perishable foods, cleaning supplies, diapers and baby wipes, medical supplies and gas cards.

From Tuesday through Friday you can drop off supplies at the transportation center at Black River Landing located at 421 Black River Lane in Lorain and September 1-2 at Rockin on the River Concerts.

Arroyo will be traveling to the Houston area on Monday.

He has traveled in the past to help with relief efforts after Hurricane Katrina and storm Sandy.

"It touches me because I've seen what mother nature can do to a community, especially if they're not prepared and how much they need and how much supplies they need. This isn't just gonna be a one time trip, this is gonna be trips and trips and trips from people all around the country," he said.

Call (440) 258-3023 to get in touch with the Councilman.
