Westporter Adam Goldberg, owner of the flood barrier company AquaFence, is organizing a food and supplies donation drive for victims of Hurricane Harvey.
He said collections will be held on Saturday, Sept. 9, from 7:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Imperial Avenue parking lot.
Once his company’s 30-foot truck is filled, it will leave from Westport and head to Houston, Goldberg said.
“As a community, we are all horrified by the images and stories of Hurricane Harvey this past week in Texas,” said Goldberg, a 13-year town resident.
Among the items requested are: nonperishable foods; cleaning material and detergents; diapers and formula; clean blankets and pillows; shampoo, deodorant and bug spray; school supplies and toys; clean, sorted and folded clothes and paper products. Goldberg said all items should be in a box or bag.
“We will be donating 100 percent of the items, as well as the actual truck, to those in need,” he said.
