In the wake of last week's devastating and deadly London high-rise fire, local organizations collecting supplies for the survivors are struggling to keep up with the vast influx of food, clothing, toys and more, NBC News reported.
“We expected an outpouring of support but no one predicted what it turned into,” said Zia Salik, national fundraising director of Islamic Relief UK.
Salik’s nonprofit is one of many in the area that have had to ask generous community members not to drop off any more supplies while they try to sort out the hundreds of boxes and bags they’ve received so far. Dozens of people died in the fire, which gutted the 24-story residence and left many people without homes.
For those still looking for a way to help, aid organizations say they are welcoming financial contributions, although they have not yet decided the most effective way to distribute these funds.
