Help Families in Puerto Rico

October 23, 2017

The families of a WCMS physician and two WIN interpreters are affected by the ongoing crisis in Puerto Rico. WCMS is helping the physician and interpreters gather supplies to send to their families. If you would like to help these families gather supplies to send to their families in Puerto Rico Bring, drop supplies by the office anytime Monday – Friday between 8:00 – 5:00 from today until November 22. This is not considered a donation to WCMS or another non-profit, so we won’t be providing receipts for any items people bring. All items collected will be given directly to three local families who will send them to loved ones in Puerto Rico. Here is a list of supplies that would help their families:

  • D batteries
  • Solar phone chargers
  • Baby diapers
  • Wipes
  • Toothbrushes
  • Insect repellant
  • Non-perishable food
    • Canned goods
    • Dry beans
    • Fruit snacks
    • Granola bars
    • Powdered milk
    • Cocoa powder
    • Gluten free mixes (breads, pancakes, etc)
  • Bottled water

The WCMS office will be helping collect these items through November 22. Our street address is:

304 Summit St. 
Asheville, NC 28803.

Thank you so much for anything you can do!
