Following a second tornado that devastated our community within the span of a week, United Way of Escambia County is asking the community to aid recovery efforts in Northern Escambia and Pensacola.

Currently, there are three ways you can help:

1. Donate to www.helpNWFLrecover.org. All donated funds stay in Escambia County and support local relief efforts. Please indicate in the Comments section which tornado relief fund response you prefer to support. Write: “Century/North Escambia relief,” “Pensacola area relief” or “Either.”

2.In-kind donations of items should be delivered to United Way of Escambia County (1301 W. Government St. Pensacola, FL 32502) from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. United Way will collect and distribute these donations to agencies working directly with impacted residents. Items needed include water, non-perishable food, household supplies, toiletries (soap, dental care items, etc.; baby items—diapers, baby wipes, baby blankets, etc.; blankets; towels) and clothing. Clothing will be sent to St. Vincent dePaul Society, and they will distribute those items to victims through their Century and Pensacola locations.

3. Offer services (such as tree removal, etc.) by emailing your business’s contact information and how you can help to Melissa Lewis at Melissa@unitedwayescambia.org.

Cumulus Media—Pensacola is also accepting in-kind donations of personal items. Please deliver any of the items needed in the following link to 6565 North W. Street, Suite 270. http://www.pensacolasjet.com/2016/02/16/helping-your-neighbors-in-century/
