Waterville, OH -

A local organization is doing their part to help those affected by the east-coast storm, but they are looking for help.

The ISOH/IMPACT organization is collecting items to send to those in need.

"Things like food, shampoo, blankets, socks and mittens," said ISHP/IMPACT President Linda Greene. "All of it will be delivered to people in the northeast."

Leaders at ISOH/IMPACT said they're still hoping to collect more, especially things to help keep people warm. They also said they're in need of cash donations to help with transportation costs, and volunteers to help pack the items up.

"We get phone calls back that say, ‘Thank you, you came in at the right time,'" Greene said. "It's just about if you get hurt or something happens to you and your family is in a crisis, then you're just paying it back and moving forward."

Donations can be dropped off at any Toledo area Tireman Auto Service Center or at ISOH/IMPACT's distribution center located at 905 Farnsworth Rd. in Waterville, OH. There is a P.O.D.S. container onsite at the Waterville location for 24/7 drop-offs. For large scale corporate and manufacturing donations, please contact the ISOH/IMPACT offices to make the necessary arrangements. Monetary donations can be made online at www.isohimpact.org or sent directly to the ISOH/IMPACT offices at 25182 W. River Rd., Perrysburg, OH 43551.

For more information, contact ISOH/IMPACT at ministries@isohimpact.org or by phone at 419-878-8548.
