Baton Rouge Flood Relief

The federal government has declared a State of Emergency in Louisiana after the worst US Natural Disaster since Hurrice Sandy hit just a few days ago. Over 40,000 homes have been affected. This includes several who work alongside my husband.

I will be assisting their company in collecting items to be delivered to Baton Rouge with an organization I work with called Activation ReACT. Last year we collected items for flood relief in Columbia, SC. Between pick ups in New Jersey, Charlotte, and Atlanta-we were able to provide a truck full of water, paper towels, cleaning supplies, snacks, hygiene products, and baby supplies.
