TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) - The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office is hoping the Forgotten Coast community can step up and donate truckloads of supplies for a community in need of major help.

Sheriff A.J. Smith told WCTV his community “got lucky” this time around, after Hurricane Ian slammed into SW Florida, impacting millions of lives.

FCSO has set up several collection sites across Franklin County. Sheriff Smith says the hope is to leave with a Semi full of toiletries, water, non-perishables, etc., by early next week.

“We know how hard it is when a hurricane hits,” sheriff Smith said.

“You are working 24 hours a day. You’re trying to make everybody’s life better and it’s tough, physically, mentally, and emotionally.”

Here’s the list of drop off sites:

  • Ace’s Hardware, Carabelle
  • Taylor Do it Best Building Supply, Eastpoint
  • High Five Dive Bar, Apalachicola
  • Waterfront Park
  • Ace Hardware, Apalachicola
