Now WRAL is partnering with Go Triangle, United Way and Raleigh-Durham International Airport to fill a bus with supplies to help those in Nash, Edgecombe, Wilson and Johnston counties.

WHAT: Help your neighbors to the east by filling a bus with supplies they need to recover from Hurricane Matthew.

WHEN/WHERE: Bring donations to Carter Finley Stadium Lot between 5 a.m. and 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 26.
