Community donates hundreds of gallons of water to help DeKalb shelter
DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. – Much of DeKalb County is without water after a major main break in Doraville on Wednesday.
One county shelter location said it had animals that need of water and took to Facebook to ask for donations.
The shelter posted to Facebook around 9:30 a.m. Wednesday, and the message was shared more than 700 times.
The shelter said anyone wishing to donate water can drop off donations at its front desk — and that’s exactly what they did.
Our water has come back on, but we are still under a boil water advisory.
Channel 2’s Justin Wilfon visited the shelter Wednesday afternoon.
“(We’re) very, very relieved.
It’s amazing what people are willing to do if you just ask for help,” Corbett said.
