This just in from Hays County spokesperson Laureen Chernow:

If you want to donate to the disaster relief effort in Hays County Sunday, May 31 and Monday, June 1, the most needed items are:

  • First aid kits
  • Heavy-duty electrical cords
  • Work gloves
  • Dish soap
  • Cleaning supplies

The donation center is not staffed to sort used items and some used items are not accepted for health and safety reasons, so please bring only new items to the Center at 200 Springtown Way in San Marcos (loading dock in back of former big box store, Suite 150) between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. daily.

Because of limited storage in Wimberley and other areas of the county, we are distributing items from there on an as-needed basis to those areas.

City of San Marcos is county on its website – information for other cities, unincorporated areas at www.sanmarcostx.gov/smtxflood. If you are a disaster victim in Hays, Blanco or Caldwell counties and need help or if you want to donate, have any questions, etc., call the hotline at 512-754-2275.
