I’m sure you are aware of the terrible wildfires in Gatlinburg and Sevier County, Tennessee last week. Over 1,000 people are now left with only the clothes on their backs – no homes, no possessions and no cars. Absolutely nothing. PPAMS has reached out to promotional products businesses in the area and at this time we are not aware of any losses. Although the folks we spoke with were spared, they all had stories of neighbors and family members who weren’t so lucky.
PPAMS is joining with Randy Philipps of Access Solutions to come together and help with providing donated items for the Gatlinburg fire victims. Items that are needed include, household items, school supplies, toiletries, adult and children size apparel, footwear, blankets, bottled water, baby formula and diapers. If you have any overrun, samples and wearables available, they would be good to donate as well.
