The best way to help in the immediate aftermath of Hurricane Laura is to donate directly to response organizations on the ground in Southwest Louisiana. Please do not drop off physical goods, neither in the affected area nor at shelters for evacuees, unless specifically requested.
Junior League Donations
Items being sought for donations include baby formula, diapers, wipes, and feminine products. These items can be dropped off at the Junior League, 4319 Carondelet St., from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. through Friday, Sep. 11.
Second Harvest Donations
Items include diapers, new and unopened hygiene products, toiletries, cleaning products, and non-perishable food items. These items can be dropped off at 700 Edwards Ave. from 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.
United Way Donations
Due the overwhelming response over the past few days of donations of toiletry and other essential items to United Way of SELA, the non-profit has hit capacity to collect items.
