PENDER COUNTY, NC (WECT) -

Volunteers are needed in the distribution center at Gateway Community Church, 416 W. Bridger St. in Burgaw.

"While Pender County students were out of school during Hurricane Matthew, the students volunteered at the distribution center,” said Tom Collins, Pender County Emergency Manager. “Now that the students are going back to the school, we will need volunteers at the distribution center.”

Organizations and civic groups are urged to volunteer. Individuals are welcomed to volunteer.

"There's no commitment necessary," said Collins. "All we need is a little elbow grease."

Flood victims may stop by the distribution center for food supplies, toiletries, and clothing.

Governor Pat McCrory is also expected to make a visit to Pender County Monday. We are waiting for more details.

Pender County Emergency Management will post updates on the Facebook page at facebook.com/penderem and on the website www.penderem.com. If you need assistance call the EM office at 910-259-1210.
