Hello Alice,

Can't give you the specifc types of volunteers needed nor skills because Thidbaux command center never got back to us, they took our name and number down but no call yet. We will follow this up in 30 mins.
----
However, we had an urgent request from a volunteer at a church in Baton Rouge where they were taking care of 200 displaced persons who came n yesterday night and were housing them at a nearby church.

They need the following donations really bad:

-bedding
-towels
-washcloths
-baby diapers and clothing all sizes
-clothes
-shoes and socks adult to children
-underwear
-toiletries items of all kinds
-toys
-books
-magazines
-Bibles
-food
-snacks

And anything else you can think of that might be of use to someone who has nothing at all.

On Thursday they gave out 400 lbs of food and had 100 people sleeping in the nearby church's basement Friday.

We called up the volunteer via the phone number provided and the following were stressed by them and confirmed by us:

-All of the mentioned items on the list
-12 cots
-20 packs of diapers (each pack having 5)
-Food & drinking water is really needed - they are running out of food to feed the ppl!


We got an address for you to where the above donations/items can be sent to: Brown Field Baptist Church , 11998, Baton Rouge.

Telephone: 225-774-4506
Volunteer's name is Patsy, you can also ask for Elizabeth.

Please, please, any assistance give to them asap, is most helpful!

Thanks,
Angelo Embuldeniya.

Kenny Tucker, Senator Boasso’s aid, said, “Currently, we're in need of work boots, overalls or coveralls, clothing, house-cleaning supplies, personal hygiene supplies, laundry supplies, medical supplies and of course, food & water.”Senator Boasso has set up the Senate District 1 Disaster Relief Fund and is seeking to have communities "adopt" this region as the center of their hurricane relief efforts.We are heading there by ship midweek. If you have "anything" that you'd like to give, please contact Naples Florida, City Councilman Johnny Nocera, 239-213-1000. We will be loading our ships there and leaving soon. Thank you for your support.Greg Brooks
