CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Charleston County is still collecting relief items for victims of Hurricane Sandy as part of the "Charleston Cares" fundraiser, which ends Thursday at noon.

Relief organizers say flashlights, batteries, cleaning supplies, first aid supplies, and baby items are at the top of the list of items needed for donation.

Other donation items needed include:

  • Non-perishable food
  • Paper towels and bathroom tissue
  • Bottled water and juices
  • Soap and hand sanitizers
  • Tools (shovels, work gloves, hand saws, etc.) NOTE: As storage of clothes requires a warehouse, no clothing will be accepted.

Live 5 News crews will be out at fire stations in West Ashley, Mt. Pleasant, and North Charleston promoting the relief effort.

Stop by and drop off supplies and say hello to our news crews while you do!
