How to Help: Collecting Supplies for Hurricane Michael Victims

Hi ShoutOUTers!

Several businesses in the St. Pete and Gulfport area are collecting supplies for victims of Hurricane Michael in the Panhandle. Here’s more information if you’d like to help out.

Three Birds Tavern in St. Pete has rented a U-Haul and will be accepting supplies and donations beginning immediately. They’ll be heading out on Monday afternoon, 10/15/18, to deliver.

Smokin’ J’s Real Texas BBQ in Gulfport is also accepting donations and supplies. Not sure when they’re heading out (probably same timeframe). They’ll also be serving up hot meals while they’re there.

Here are some examples of items needed:

  • Non-perishable food Items needed: Peanut butter, boxed cereal, dried milk, canned meat, fruit, soups and vegetables, pop-top food items (i.e. Vienna sausages, fruit cups), granola bars, pop tarts, juice boxes and water, etc.
  • Personal hygiene items: deodorant, shampoo, soap, toothbrush, toothpaste, disposable razors, toilet paper, blankets, clothing, etc.
  • Baby items: diapers, baby wipes, powdered formula, baby food, etc.
  • Misc: Batteries, flashlights, Clorox wipes, etc.
