This Week At The Classical Station

 

Monday, September 24, 2018


Bruce Huffine

Hurricane Florence has left unbelievable devastation in her wake. Helping the folks down east who need everything just to get through each day is something hundreds of volunteers here in Raleigh are doing.

One of our own volunteer announcers, Bruce Huffine, has pitched in to help. Here's what he has to say:

"I am assisting in providing logistical assistance to incoming relief supplies such as food, baby supplies, cleaning kits, tarps, and water. When pallets of goods are received at a massive warehouse in Knightdale, I tag and inventory the goods for ultimate disposition and shipment by expert relief coordinators who know where the need is the highest. Donations and suppport comes from numerous relief agencies throughout the state, from corporations, and from individual donations. Everything is important, and in this time of great need, providing immediate and targeted supplies will be one small part of the unfolding assistance throughout the impacted areas of North Carolina."

We are indeed blessed with some amazing volunteers. Please do what you can to help.
