Morgan City:

Those wishing to provide cooked food for the refugees should call the Floor and Decorating Center in Morgan City (385-2021) to be assigned a day when their food donation will be needed.

Because the Red Cross, state Office of Emergency Preparedness and the Federal Emergency Management Agency are unable to help refugees in the Tri-City area, residents are being asked to continue helping the organizations supplying food, shelter and essentials to the refugees.
St. Mary Outreach is in need of numerous supplies. Chief among that list is cash, but other needs include:
—Baby wipes.
—Toilet paper and facial tissue.
—Toothbrushes and toothpaste.
—Diapers and baby formula.
—Snack crackers.
—Pudding cups.
—Canned fruit.
—Canned meat.
—Anything with pop-top lids.
—Pop tarts.
—Bottled water.
—Sodas and juice.
—Non-perishable items.

To make donations, contact St. Mary Outreach at 608 First St. in Morgan City, or call 385-0525.
At the Berwick Civic Center, a temporary shelter, many of their needs have been taken care of by the community. However, items still needed include:

The Bernards Township Chamber of Commerce is collecting truckloads of canned food, baby supplies, soap and other necessities to ship to a Louisiana town filled with hurricane refugees.

The chamber has set up more than 60 business and church locations in Hunterdon, Somerset and Morris counties where donors can drop off items. They will be trucked to the Houma-Terrebonne Chamber of Commerce in Houma, La.

The group is looking for baby diapers, wipes, bottled water, nonperishable food, can openers, paper plates, paper cups, plaster utensils, paper towels and toilet paper. They also need soap, toothpaste, bandages, ointments, bug repellent, pet food and pet supplies.

To find or set up a donation site, contact the chamber at (908) 766-6755.

How You Can Help the Berwick Civic Complex, Morgan City, Lousiana

At the Berwick Civic Complex, a temporary shelter, many of their needs have been taken care of by the community.

However, items still needed include:




—Deodorant and other toiletries.


—Diapers, especially larger sizes.

—All baby products.

—New underwear and socks in all sizes.

—Cots and child sleeping mats.

Do not bring clothing donations to the Berwick shelter. They have enough. It is now being handled at the First Assembly of God church located across the street.

Do not bring cooked food to the shelter. The shelter is required by the health department to cook all food on site.

Volunteers still are needed at all hours of the day and night.

Clergy are needed to listen to the refugees and to pray with them.

Items for recreation, such as coloring books or reading material, are needed for children and adults as well.
