Habitat for Humanity of Lake-Sumter, in partnership with Lake Cares Food Pantry, the Cross Church, and Second Harvest Food Bank, will offer free cases of bottled water, baby supplies today, Sept. 18 and Tuesday, Sept. 19. Local community volunteers will be onsite to assist with the distribution and to help residents throughout the area who remain without power in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma.
Distribution will take place from 9 a.m. to noon both days at 710 South Bay St., Eustis. Today’s distribution will consist of water and baby supplies only while Tuesday’s distribution will offer food, water, and baby supplies.
The donation of water came from the Lake Geauga Habitat for Humanity out of Chardon, Ohio where the local Habitat affiliate has been accepting donations of water all week for transport to the area.
