Many families who were flooded just months ago are now fighting rising flood waters again. Our north shore region, especially Tangipahoa Parish, has been most impacted. Family members, neighbors and friends have had to be rescued from their homes. They once again need our help and support.
Due to overwhelming generosity, our Southshore and Northshore drop off locations are now CLOSED and in the process of distributing items.
All deliveries should be made to: Multi-Agency Disaster Warehouse, 9550 Dawnadele Ave., Baton Rouge, LA 7080 - Sunday - Friday 9:00 am to 5:00pm
Clothing donations should be delivered or shipped to: St. Vincent de Paul Society, 824 N Morrison Blvd, Hammond, LA 70401
United Way supported programs with nonprofit Community Impact Partner Agencies can provide food, clothing, counseling and other services to make people whole during this tumultuous time. And Long-term recovery and rebuilding takes time, money, and is more than just brick and mortar.
United Way of Southeast Louisiana President and CEO Michael Williamson says, "Mother Nature has once again shown us she is in charge. Just several months ago our region was flooded and now they are hurting again. Families who are still trying to rebuild are now at risk. Our residents are resilient, but they need help to recover."
Citizens in need of services should dial 2-1-1. VIA LINK 2-1-1 is available 24/7. VIA LINK is a partner agency of United Way and provides information, referrals, training, and crisis intervention to people, organizations, and communities so they can help themselves and others.
