Donate to McDougald Terrace

Posted by: Editor-Bonitta Best on Friday, January 10, 2020 at 12:00:00 am

Hundreds of residents of McDougald Terrace have been evacuated from their Durham Housing Authority homes and displaced into local hotels due to concerns of high carbon monoxide levels.  Ashley Canady, president of the McDougald Terrace Public Housing Resident Council, is leading efforts to collect items on behalf of residents, including nonperishable foods, feminine hygiene items, hand lotions, soaps, toothpaste, diapers, other personal care products and water.

Several locations have been assigned as donation drop points around Durham. One is at Zweli's Restaurant, 4600 Durham Chapel Hill Blvd, Unit 26. Call (984) 219-7555. A GoFundMe page also has been set up and so far over $16,000 has been raised.

Let’s help our neighbors!
