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.
