Sin­clair Com­mu­nity Col­lege and many other or­ga­ni­za­tions have stepped up to help, pro­vid­ing sites to drop off cases of bot­tled wa­ter and canned goods.

Through Fri­day, Oct. 19, do­na­tions will be col­lected to sup­port those af­fected by this hur­ri­cane and other dis­as­ters.

Michelle L. Ri­ley, CEO of The Foodbank, says “Our thoughts go out to all those im­pacted by Hur­ri­cane Michael. Many Day­to­ni­ans have lo­cal ties to res­i­dents on the East Coast. Those who are look­ing for a way to help can do so lo­cally.
