Tucson, Arizona - Several groups have banded together to collect relief supplies to help the victims of Hurricane Henriette.
The drive is a collaborative effort by World Care, LULAC-Mexico, FAI of Sonora, PPEP field offices and charter schools.
There are 24,000 families homeless in southern Sonora as a result of the storm, which hit the Mexican state Wednesday, says PPEP.
Supplies that are still needed include blankets, bottled water, diapers, hygienic items, canned and dry foods, sleeping bags, clothing for adults and children, and first aid items.
Items can be dropped off to-day through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the PPEP main office, 802 E. 46th St., or at any of the following PPEP Tec charter schools:
• Celestino Fernández Learning Center, 1840 E. Benson Highway, Tucson.
