Olde Ridge aiding Harvey victims

Shop owners at The Olde Ridge Village Shoppes in Chadds Ford are taking part in relief efforts to help the victims of Hurricane Harvey in Texas.

James Cunius, of Cunius Martial Arts, sent out an email to other shop owners in the center on Wednesday asking for help in collecting needed supplies and that his studio would be the collection point.

Though Cunius was unavailable for later comment, Stephanie Rossino, owner of Giggy Bites, said the collection was going well.

"It's been very good," Rossino said. "People have gone out and bought items to bring us. James was the spark for all of this, and it was just through email and social media."

The collection will continue through the remainder of Saturday September 2. Necessary items include non-perishable human food — cans with easy to open tops — dry food for both dogs and cats, bottled water, blankets, towels, basic first aid supplies, travel sized toiletries, diapers and cleaning. Gift cards are also welcome.
