Jack’s Foodland Supermarket in Eva has joined the Cullman law firm Crocker & Sparks and MyWay Transportation, Inc. to be a centralized drop point for much-needed supplies aiding victims in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.

Champ Crocker is the primary spokesperson the effort.

Crocker has been in close contact with emergency agencies on the front lines of the Hurricane Harvey Relief Effort in Texas. The needs of victims displaced by the storm have shifted from pure drinking water, bedding, baby supplies and pet items.

Now the need is primarily for cleaning supplies and nutrient-rich, staple foods such as peanut butter.

MyWay Transportation, Inc. has donated the use of a 53-foot long trailer (located in the parking lot of Jacks Foodland). MyWay will also supply a big diesel truck and a driver for the round trip to Texas.

The Smith brothers – Joel & Eric – have installed a drop-off box in the front lobby of Foodland for anyone wishing to donate supplies. These two men are then transferring the items out to the large trailer as the donation box fills up. Several citizens have already purchased cases of drinking water and cleaning supplies.

All of the above parties invite other individuals, businesses, and agencies in the area to join them in this venture.

The goal is a FULL trailer full of supplies headed to Texas ASAP.

Also, this group is accepting cash donations that will be converted into much-needed supplies as well.

This video will explain all aspects of the emergency relief effort that is underway:

Jack’s Foodland Supermarket is open seven days per week for donations:

Monday thru Saturday – 7 am to 9 pm
Sunday – 9 am to 8 pm

They are located at 5564 Highway 55 E, Eva, Alabama, AL 35621.
