The Outer Banks Restaurant Association is trying to help restaurants that were impacted by the storm. It's collecting kitchen equipment for places that lost everything and are starting from scratch.

“We all (restaurant owners) have used kitchen equipment laying around that we aren’t using,” said Mike Kelly with Kelly’s Hospitality Group.

Kelly has a storage unit at Nags Head Self Storage that equipment can be stored in until time to take it all down to Ocracoke. If someone has any equipment that they would like to donate, including dishware, glasses, etc., or questions, please contact Mike Kelly at (252) 202-4116.

Donations will be accepted now through February 28, 2020.
