Manteo Inn seeks donations for Hurricane Florence relief

By on September 17, 2018

Hurricane Florence pummeled southeastern North Carolina.

The town of Manteo made it through Hurricane Florence without major damage, and the owners of an inn there are collecting donations to send to other regions of the state which weren’t so fortunate.

The White Doe Inn is working with the Hurricane Aid for Southeastern N.C. and Robeson County Church and Community Center on relief efforts. Innkeepers Bebe and Bob Woody welcome the help of any local co-sponsors, a press statement from the couple said.

Donations may be brought to White Doe Inn from Monday, Sept. 17 through Friday, Sept. 21. Any of the following supplies will be accepted, but they must be new and in their original, unopened manufacturers’ packaging:

  • Toiletries including dental supplies
  • Tampons and pads
  • Diapers (child and adult)
  • Baby formula
  • Baby bottles (new in packaging)
  • Wet wipes
  • 
Underwear, socks, and sports bras (new)
  • 
First aid supplies and factory sealed medicines
  • Cleaning supplies
  • 
Canned goods
  • Bed pillows and blankets (new)
  • Box fans
  • 
Hand sanitizer
  • Water
Work gloves, utility and latex/nitrile gloves
  • Utility knives
  • Related work and safety items
  • Flash lights
  • Batteries
  • Trash bags
 and heavy duty clean-up bags
  • General construction tools and equipment
  • Safety equipment, safety clothes and work boots
  • Nonperishable, shelf-stable food items

Donations may be placed on the front porch of the White Doe Inn. Again, these donations need to be new, in their original packaging. It takes too much manpower to sort used items, like clothes, the inn’s owners said. Please don’t send any clothing other than new underwear, socks, and sports bras.

Used clothing, shoes, toys, books and magazines, games and perishable items will not be accepted.

Please come support those in dire need. These are targeted needs with locals we know (Hurricane Aid for Southeastern NC) and community leaders with specific, urgent requests, the statement said.
