How to help Oatland Island recover from tornado damage


It’s been three weeks since a tornado ripped through Whitemarsh Island.

Many are still working to pick up the pieces, like the Oatland Island Wildlife Center.

The beloved education and conservation center took quite the hit, and they could use your help.

Because of safety concerns, they are handling reconstruction and cleanup on their own. But there are several opportunities for the community to pitch in.

Take a look at the list of fundraisers below:

– Saturday 8/18 – Lemonade Sale at Islands Ace Hardware

Stop by the store from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. for an ice cold cup of lemonade!

You can RSVP on Facebook here.

– Thursday 8/23 – Papa John’s Night!
