In the wake of the devastating floods that have ravaged Houston, Texas, Orlando Weekly is currently looking for donated items to send to those displaced by Hurricane Harvey.

We are asking the community to drop off supplies at our downtown Orlando office during regular business hours (8 a.m.-5 p.m.) at 16 W. Pine St., and we'll take care of the rest. Please drop off items by Thursday, Sept. 7, at 5 p.m.



Supplies we are looking for:
- Twin bed sheet sets (two sheets and a pillowcase)
- Locks
- Twin comforters
- New pillows
- Stuffed animals
- Basic hygiene supplies
- Toothbrushes, toothpaste, etc. (little care packages)

This effort is in collaboration with Absolute Exhibits, who will coordinate the actual delivery of the items to Houston.
