Mountain Brook Police seek supplies for Texas, Birmingham’s own Buffalo Rock steps up

4

Members of the​ ​Mountain Brook Police Department have organized a collection effort for ​bottled water and medical supplies to aid victims of Hurricane Harvey in Houston and other impacted areas.

According to a post on the ​department’s Facebook page Tuesday, they’re seeking donations that can be dropped off in front of the PD located at 101 Tibbett St.

MBPD is accepting donations of bottled water and Diabetes type medical supplies(not insulin or meds) for areas impacted by Hurricane Harvey,” the department wrote in one post.

The PD will continue to take donations into next week that will be sent to Houston, the nation’s fourth largest city, as Harvey continues to destroy homes, claim lives and displace tens of thousands of people.

Already, Birmginham’s own Buffalo Rock — the largest independent single shareholder owned Pepsi Bottler in the U.S. — is stepping up to the call to help. MPPD thanked the company via Facebook on Friday for donating 12 pallets of supplies to Harvey victims.

“Our friends at Buffalo Rock truly do ROCK! They contacted us about donating some water, then they added fruit juices,then they added beef jerky! A pallet or so blossomed into THIS pic (12 pallets!). This is being straight to the Christian Service Mission who is sending trucks every week to Texas!,” wrote the Mountain Brook Police Department.

  1. Excellent website you have here but I was wondering if you
    knew of any user discussion forums that cover the
    same topics talked about here? I’d really like to be a part of community
    where I can get responses from other experienced people
    that share the same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me know.

    Many thanks!
