KINSTON, N.C. (WNCT) – A new distribution center is now open on the south side of Lenoir County.
From clothing to diapers and food and water, flooding victims can grab anything they need.
The center is also providing a small amount of money for those who lost everything.
“Yesterday we helped at least 130 families,” said Lisa Best, a volunteer at the center. “They are anywhere from four, five, six in the household, so there were a lot of people we were able to help.”
The center is located at the Eubanks Video and Tanning on NC-11S.
It is open every day except Sunday.
The Lenoir County Department of Social Services will also start taking Disaster Food Stamp applications Sunday through Wednesday.
Disaster Food Stamps are for households not currently receiving food stamp benefits and who had a loss of food due to Hurricane Matthew flooding, loss of income or severe unreimbursed damages.
