Georgia National Fairgrounds collecting items for Hurricane Michael victims

The fairgrounds says 'many hands make light work,' and they're asking for your help

Starting Monday, Oct. 22 through Wednesday, Oct. 24, items can be dropped off between 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the east side of the property. This means you’ll need to go to the East Gate entrance to get in.

  • Large tarps
  • Folding tables
  • Chairs
  • Gas cans
  • Trash bags
  • Duct tape
  • Ladders
  • Radios
  • Toilet paper

  • Bug spray
  • Baby diapers
