PIMA COUNTY, AZ ( Tucson News Now) -

World Care, a humanitarian relief organization based in Tucson is in the midst of moving to a new warehouse.

The last three years, it’s been sharing space with Sam Levitz near 36th Street and Palo Verde. According to World Care executive director Courtney Slanaker, the location was always meant to be temporary.

The new warehouse is near Prince and I-10. Slanaker said World Care will be moved into it by November 1.

Right now, a lot of resources are dedicated toward the organization’s in-town move so they’re not able to collect or send physical supplies to Hurricane Matthew relief efforts right away.

However, they are taking monetary donations.
“Bottom line, despite the fact we have to move our entire operations to a new building, we’re still going to respond to Hurricane Matthew and send the supply that we do have when the time is appropriate,” said Slanaker citing the fact that rebuilding efforts will take months.
