Mayor Sylvester Turner Asks Houstonians to Come to the Aid of Flood Victims in Louisiana

Help is on the way soon to the thousands of flood victims in Louisiana, thanks to a call to action by Mayor Sylvester Turner. After speaking to Mayor Kip Holden of East Baton Rouge Parish this week, Mayor Turner has recruited several faith leaders to open their churches as collection sites for essential items which are desperately needed.
To put the need into perspective, the catastrophic flood is the worst natural disaster to strike the United States since Hurricane Sandy four years ago. Red Cross officials estimate the flood damage to hit more than $30 million dollars.

Houstonians can help by taking their boxed, unsealed, and shipment ready items to any of the collection sites listed. Faith-based organizations will collect items until September 6. The City of Houston will arrange to transport the items to Baton Rouge by September 9.
