NOW: ABC57 donation drive for flood victims a huge success


ABC 57, Federated Media and Goodwill Industries teamed up to collect donations for residents affected by the February flood. The response from the community was overwhelming.

More than 300 cars stopped by the donation centers in Niles, South Bend and Elkhart on Friday.

Donors dropped off gloves, masks, bleach, water, trash bags, and garden sprayers to assist residents with the cleanup.

With your help, we filled over 30 six foot tall bins with supplies.

In South Bend, if you were affected by the flood and need supplies, you can pick them up from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday from the Emergency Management Office, which is located at the Central Fire Station on Michigan Street.

You can also call 574-235-9378 to get more information.

We're working with the emergency management departments in Berrien and Elkhart counties to find out where you can pick up supplies.

In addition to what was collected on Friday, we learned on Monday that Berry Global in Goshen contacted Goodwill and said it would donate 7,000 trash bags for flood victims.
