Parma - As Hurricane Dorian bears down on Florida's east coast, one local barbershop is doing all they can to help those in need.
Mario Innocenzi runs Mario's Barbershop in the Pleasant Valley Shopping Center in Parma, and is asking the community to donate basic necessities for the victims of the hurricane.
“Diapers, adult and children’s diapers, canned goods, non-perishable goods, anything that shelters may need, please bring it,” says Innocenzi.
Innocenzi says he loves to help others and knows a little bit about waiting out a hurricane. He lived in the Orlando area 15 years ago during Hurricane Charlie.
Donations can be dropped off at Mario’s Barbershop (7526 Broadview Road) starting on Tuesday from 7:30 a.m. through closing time.
Innocenzi will then connect directly with FEMA and he along with a group of volunteers plan to drive the donations to the affected areas.
