Adam Goldberg is a longtime Westporter. His company, Aquafence, provides state of-the-art removable flood barriers that work great in emergencies, but are kept out of sight the rest of the time.
Goldberg is sending a 30-foot truck to Houston. He hopes it will be filled to the brim with supplies — donated by area residents.
He’s looking for:
- Non-perishable food items
- Snack bars, granola and fruit bars
- Cleaning materials and detergents
- Diapers and formula
- Clean blankets and pillows
- Soap, shampoo, deodorant and bug spray
- School supplies
- Pet food
- Clean, sorted and folded clothes
- Paper products.
Donations should be brought in boxes and bags, labeled with what’s inside. They can be brought to the Imperial Avenue parking lot this Saturday (September 9, 7:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.).
Please email Goldberg (firstname.lastname@example.org) beforehand, with a list of goods being donated or any questions.
PS: Goldberg’s generosity extends far beyond collecting and delivering much-needed goods. After driving the truck to Houston, he’ll donate it to a relief organization there — for keeps.
He’ll fly home. And no doubt start organizing his next project.
