Many of us have loved ones affected by this disaster that is still not over.  Financial donations are the most helpful and can be applied where most needed. Those wishing to donate should only do so to a recognized disaster relief organization to avoid getting scammed.

The Savannah HOA is setting up a donation drop location at the main clubhouse during business hours from now until further notice.  Thursday 8/31 and 9/7 from 4-6PM will be Drive-By Donation times where we will collect items in the round about in front of the Clubhouse.  The HOA staff will then transport these donations to the reception center in Dallas.  Please see the list below for donation items that the HOA can accept.  The donation list is not calling for non-perishable food items at this time.

  • new underwear
  • new socks
  • new warmups for men, women, children and infants
  • new pillows, pillow cases and blankets
  • new flip flops for showers
  • new towels and wash cloths
  • toiletries/hygiene products
  • baby formula and baby wipes, bottles, diapers
  • Graco Pack n’ Plays for babies to sleep in
