Mississippians are familiar with the grueling restoration efforts after a hurricane and how beneficial outside aid can be.
The City of D’Iberville is asking for your help to assist them in aiding Hurricane Laura victims. Their goal is to fill their trailer with items like bottled water, cleaning supplies, latex gloves, and hand sanitizer.
You can drop off supplies from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the D’Iberville Fire Department Number One on Lamey Bridge Road. They’ll then drive the trailer to Lake Charles next Thursday. They’re also asking for items for babies like diapers and formula.
The City of D’Iberville has made it their mission to assist those in need as a way to repay those who assisted them during Hurricane Katrina.
Some of their most recent missions were for those suffering damages from Hurricane Michael and the flooding in Baton Rouge. D’Iberville Police Captain Jason King said, “Being affected by Hurricane Katrina, the greatest memory I have was the generosity of what you would call your neighbors that got much needed supplies to us that we weren’t able to get because of the storm. I mean, they’re probably in great need of many things we take for granted that they’re probably not able to get right now.”
The City of D’Iberville is also accepting monetary donations. You can write a check payable to the Gulf Coast Community Foundation.
