Clean up and recovery continues and some businesses and offices are set to open while others remain close. Here is a brief list of what we have so far.

The Liberty County Branch of the YMCA will open at 8 a.m. Tuesday. According to the press release the facility will not be operating as normal, but provide a location for those in our communities who need access to hot water and facilities.

Classes at Armstrong State University’s main campus in Savannah and the Armstrong Liberty Center in Hinesville are canceled through Wednesday, October 12.

All events on campus are also canceled.   

The safety of students, faculty and staff is our top priority at Armstrong. We will continue to issue further updates as needed.

Additional information is available at or by calling Armstrong’s Emergency Hotline at 912.344.2500.

Liberty County School System staff and students return on Wednesday.

Kroger is asking customers to give money to benefit victims of Hurricane Matthew by “rounding up” their purchases to the nearest dollar or making a cash donation when they visit their local Kroger. Customers’ donations will assist the American Red Cross in providing aid to victims of the hurricane.

“Kroger customers are very compassionate and always willing to help those in need,” said Glynn Jenkins, director of communications for Kroger’s Atlanta Division. “Each contribution will allow the Red Cross to provide assistance to the victims of this devastating storm. We ask that our customers come together as we ‘round-up’ support for victims and help provide assistance for the relief efforts.”

The grocery retailer plans to begin accepting donations on Tuesday, Oct. 11 and will continue through Saturday, Oct. 22. Kroger wants to provide aid to all those in need. And a Round-Up is a simple way for shoppers to give. Round-Up funds add up quickly so even a small amount of change will make a very big difference. For example, a customer who purchases $99.02 of groceries can “Round Up” his bill to $100 – so 98 cents goes toward the relief effort.

The Red Cross Hurricane Relief Fund will use Kroger customers’ donations to deliver food, water, clothing and other necessities to help displaced residents and victims.
