Donation Day to be held in Fort Worth


Excerpted from a Fort Worth Star-Telegram story by Lauren Gustus

We’ve been glued to our phones and televisions since Harvey first struck Texas.

The rains have passed but the need has not and will not. Families and friends are stuck in their homes. Many of us are keeping in touch but cannot get to them. Evacuees are starting to come to our shelter here in Fort Worth.

All of us want to help.

A recovery will take the whole community. It will demand neighbor helping neighbor, across the state and over many months.

You can make a difference. Together we can make a difference.

Monday, the Star-Telegram will host a drop-off day at the Kimbell Art Museum in partnership with three of our local museums: the Kimbell, the Amon Carter Museum of American Art and the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth.

From 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday, volunteers will be on hand to accept needed items, from diapers to dog food. A full list of requested items is below. The items will go directly to those in need, first in Fort Worth and then in shelters elsewhere if needed.

All you’ve got to do is drive up to the curb and we’ll accept your items. You don’t have to leave the car.
