Disaster Relief Drive

On the heels of the tragic floods that plagued Southern Louisiana recently, we are asking all Region III SNMA and MAPS chapters to join in our continuing efforts to provide material and financial relief to those who have been affected. Approximately 40,000 homes were flooded, leaving 11 dead, and nearly 30 of the state's 64 parishes declared condemned.

Please contact us about making donations. We will provide additional information about where, when, and to whom the donations can be sent. Among the items to consider for donation are:

Clothing (Undergarments, Jackets, Tops, Bottoms, etc)
Toiletries (Diapers, Feminine Hygiene Products, Toothpaste, Mouthwash, Bar Soap, Washcloths, etc.)
Hardware (Batteries, Flashlights, etc.)
Linens (Blankets, Towels, Comforters, etc.)
Non-Perishable Foods (Dry Foods, Canned Goods, etc)

Examples are given above, but be sure to include a comprehensive list of items to be collected in your advertisements. We are excited to have this opportunity to lend a helping hand to our brothers and sisters in need. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.
