Update

The donation center for flood and storm victims at 200 Springtown Way in San Marcos (loading dock in back of former big box store) is in immediate need of certain supplies to help victims and volunteers clean up flood damage and to provide care items for those affected by the storms and flooding. This is the central distribution point for goods going out to other distribution centers in Hays County. There is a distribution center at that same location for victims needing supplies.

Volunteers to help with a variety of needs, including sorting and distributing relief items as well as other tasks, are also needed. Persons who want to volunteer should call 512-754-2275 or go by one of two volunteer centers to register and get a wristband in Wimberley at Cypress Creek Church 211 Stillwater and at San Marcos Plaza Park, 205 N. C.M. Allen Pkwy, San Marcos.

Needed immediately are:

  • Rubber boots (critical need)
  • Work gloves (each worker can use several pairs per day!)
  • Large squeegees with mop handles for cleaning floors and walls (critical need)
  • Sun screen
  • Shampoo and conditioner
  • Body wash
  • Hand wash
  • All types of cleaning supplies
  • Laundry detergent
  • Disinfectant wipes
  • Floor cleaner and disinfectants such as Lysol (critical need)
  • Toilet paper
  • Paper towels
