The hurricanes that have swept across Gulf Coast and then the coast of Florida have caused widespread, catastrophic flooding and damage. Estimates have indicated that reparations from Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma will cost between $150 billion and $290 billion.

Our hearts go out to the families and businesses affected by these devastating storms and we are filled with the need to do something productive to help.

With that thought in mind, we ask you to join us in Operation Recovery, to stuff the truck for hurricane relief on Tuesday, September 19th between 6:00 AM and 7:00 PM at any participating Wal-Mart.

Walmart Locations:

  • 1st & Wetmore
  • Speedway & Kolb 
  • El Con at Broadway 

We've teamed up with World Care here in Tucson to accept donations at these locations for an entire day, filling trucks that have been generously donated by Abba & Sons Moving and ship the donations to those in need in Texas and Florida.

  1. Work gloves
  2. Sunscreen
  3. Insect repellant
  4. Heavy duty garbage bags
  5. Batteries
  6. Dust masks
