TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - The Tallahassee Police Department is helping those assisting in areas west of Tallahassee following Hurricane Michael.

And TPD needs your help with Operation First Responder and Family Relief.

WTXL ABC 27's Jada Williams was live Thursday morning at Target on West Tennessee Street.

People can drop off donated items to three locations, one of those locations being the Target on West tennessee.

The police department heard that the first responders in cities such as Mexico Beach, Panama City, Lynn Haven, Marianna and Blountstown need basic hygiene and clothing items.

So they are partnering with the Florida Police Chiefs Association to put together the drive.

They're collecting items such as soap, shampoo, listerine and toothpaste.

But they're also looking for things like femine hygiene products, underwear, towels and washclothes.

TPD will have tables set up at Mission Barbecue on South Magnolia Drive, the Lake Ella Publix and the Target on West Tennessee.

The tables will be up Thursday from 10 a.m. until 8 p.m. and Friday between the hours of 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.
