by Asheville Citizen Times

ASHEVILLE -- The disaster relief program of Western North Carolina nonprofit Hearts With Hands is preparing to help as needed along the coast of the Gulf of Mexico as Tropical Storm Isaac makes landfall.

The storm is expected to reach hurricane strength and by the time its eye hits land, which may happen Wednesday.

"This storm has potential to make landfall the exact same day as Hurricane Katrina in 2005 at almost the exact same area," said Bill Bradley, executive director of Hearts With Hands.

The group is seeking donations immediately of nonperishable foods, flashlights, batteries, bottled water, hygiene and first aid items, camping supplies, diapers and other baby items, new clothes and over-the-counter medications.

Donations may be dropped off in Asheville at the organization's Asheville warehouse (951 Sand Hill Road) or Brown's Pottery (2398 Hendersonville Highway) or at Computers For Christ in Swannanoa.

To learn more, call 667-1912 or visit www.heartswithhands.
