Gateway Community Church has been acting as a distribution center for the county, but right now it can no longer accept clothing or furniture, according to Pender County Emergency Manager Tom Collins.
However, “donations of new undergarments are greatly encouraged at this time,” the release states.
To volunteer at the distribution center, or to donate underwear, contact Gateway Community Church, 416 W. Bridger St., Burgaw.
