The Lodge Collects Donations to Help Victims of Hurricane Florence

Contact Us

The Lodge is proud to support the efforts of the Town of Dewey Beach in a collection for hurricane victims in North Carolina.

Hurricane Florence made landfall on the east coast of North Carolina last week where it has resulted in catastrophic flooding across the state. Many people and pets have lost some if not all their belongings in the destruction of the storm. After reaching out to non-profit organizations in North Carolina, the Town of Dewey Beach has compiled a list of items that are still needed.

The Lodge at Truitt Homestead is collecting these items at their Rehoboth Sales Office (330 Rehoboth Ave) until 3:00 PM on Friday, September 28th for delivery to North Carolina. For more information contact Michele Strum at 302-232-6372 or email [email protected]
