Dram & Draught Collecting Supplies for Louisiana Flood Victims

Chad Michael McIntyre, owner of Eco-Tech Draft Systems in Raleigh (who you might remember from DTR’s former Market restaurant in the Mordecai/Oakwood area), is going to his hometown of Baton Rouge to deliver much-needed supplies. Volunteers will be loading up a truck, and Chad will depart for flood-ravaged regions on Saturday, Aug. 20 at 1 p.m.

Drew Schenck, one of the owners of popular new spot Dram and Draught, has volunteered the bar as a donation drop-off point. “Chad is willing to drive down to Louisiana and help those affected by the flooding, so let’s all chip in and help fill that truck,” said Schenck.

Those wishing to help are encouraged to drop off the following supplies at Dram & Draught – 623 Hillsborough Street, Downtown Raleigh:

  • Work gloves
  • Disposable dust masks
  • Box knives (box cutters)
  • Large trash bags
  • Medium to large plastic bins (to store what didn’t get wet)
  • Socks – men’s, women’s, children’s sizes
  • Diapers – all sizes
  • Toilet paper
  • Toothbrushes and toothpaste
  • Bug spray
  • Home Depot gift cards

Dram and Draught will be collecting items up until 11 a.m. on Saturday, prior to the 1 p.m. truck departure.
