Gloucester County Donation Portal is open


Under direction from Director Robert M. Damminger, Gloucester County has created a donation request portal for those affected by the Sept. 1 tornado.

“If you are in need of assistance, we are here for you. Our Gloucester County community has been so helpful with collection donations and assisting with relief efforts. Gloucester County has since collected those donations and will begin disseminating to those in need,” said Director Robert M. Damminger. “This portal is an easy-to-use survey that will allow tornado victims to request donations to be delivered to their home or location of their choosing.”

The portal is currently accessible here:

Open to Gloucester County Residents only.

We ask that all individuals remain patient while the Gloucester County Disaster Relief Donation and Distribution Center fulfills requests.

Thank you to everyone who donated items to those affected by Hurricane Ida and the tornado. There was such a overwhelming response that the Gloucester County Disaster Relief Donation and Distribution Center is at capacity with many items, but still in urgent need of the following items:

Work Gloves

45 Gallon Trash Bags


Trash Cans

Surface Wipes

Cleaning Spray

Laundry Detergent

Cleaning Rags

Large and Medium Totes

Please drop off items at the United Way of Gloucester County at 454 Crown Point Road, Thorofare between 10am and 3pm, Monday - Friday from September 13th - 24th.

Gloucester County has established a hotline for those affected by the tornado. If you are in need of assistance, please don’t hesitate to call at (856) 307-4805.

The hotline is operated Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
