Stock up on Hurricane Supplies Now!
Hurricane season in Tampa runs between June 1 and November 1 so now is the time to stock up on emergency supplies. It only takes one storm to impact our mothers and children at Alpha House. While we do our best to keep enough supplies on hand to keep our families safe and healthy, we can use your help to fill our emergency kit. Here is a list of supplies that you should have on hand for your family. If you can buy extras of these supplies, we would welcome your donations at Alpha House. Donations should be labeled “Hurricane Supplies” when delivered to Alpha House (201 S. Tampania Rd, Tampa).
For more helpful information to prepare for hurricanes and other severe Tampa storms, please follow this link to the National Weather Service Hurricane Center (http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/prepare/). There is great information available on how you can keep your family (and ours) safe. Thank you for your generous donations!
