The Mayor of Boulder City, Kiernan McManus, has made a personal appeal to the public on the need for public safety equipment, and also to the citizens that there is a need to help those locally. On every Monday and Wednesday, until further notice, the City is collecting household items for those in need at City Hall, from 10am – noon.
“We welcome donations from residents as well as businesses that have goods that they do not currently need due to the Governor-ordered closure. Items will be distributed to local organizations, senior centers and individuals in need as their supplies diminish. Items that will be accepted include:
- Non-perishable food items (canned, boxed, unopened)
- Sealed beverages (i.e. water, Gatorade; no alcohol accepted)
- Toilet paper, tissue, paper towel
- Disposable paper or plastic plates, bowls, cups and utensils
- Pet food and supplies
- Personal hygiene supplies (sealed toothbrushes, toothpaste, deodorant, etc.)
- Feminine products
- Medical grade surgical gowns and masks (no homemade items, please)
- Rubber or latex gloves
- Batteries for small appliances
We will not be accepting household furniture, home accessories, medicines or books. Those preferring to make cash donations may choose to donate directly to our local charities. Receipts will be available for those making donations. For more information or if you are in need of items, contact Paul Sikora, Logistics Manager for the Boulder City Emergency Operations Center at 702.293.9246.
