Several families in Haywood County were devastated less than two years ago when tropical depression rains dumped 14 inches of rain, eight of which fell in a two-hour span.

This caused flash flooding and landslides, destroying bridges and homes, and displaced 150 families.

Elbaville Church in Advance has been supporting these families with furniture, clothes, household goods and food. While many families have found permanent places to live, many are still struggling.

Elbaville, 2595 NC 801 S., Advance, will host a back-to-school supply drive thru on Saturday, July 29 from noon-4 p.m.
