The items they need include: electrolyte powder mix that can be added to water bottles (like Propel); electrolyte replacement water in cases; water; such individual snacks as protein bars, trail mix and jerky sticks; diabetic-friendly snacks; black socks; underwear (preferably extra-large, but all sizes welcome); dark T-shirts (all sizes); Chapstick; sunblock; wet wipes for face and body; acetaminophen, ibuprofen and allergy medications; sodas (including diet); nail clippers, tweezers and shaving cream; Vienna sausages and potted meat; crackers; storage containers; and containers for warming food (glass preferred).

A spokeswoman said one of the evacuation centers had requested the items for firefighters.
