How You can Help the New Orleans Tornado Victims

img via GAMBIT Weekly

Unfortunately, on February 7th, a massive tornado came through New Orleans East and severely destroyed/damaged miles of property, including injuring several of the Parish' residents.  Seeing these photos really hurt me, since I've witnessed this down there first hand after a natural disaster.  Our people need help.  Here's how you can offer your hand...  

The Greater New Orleans Foundation is taking online donations for its Helping Our Neighbors: Tornado Relief Fund.

Food Pantry of New Orleans (13040 I-10 Service Road) is collecting nonperishable food.

City Church (located in New Orleans East) is seeking donations online and looking for volunteers to help with relief efforts.

St. Bernard Project has launched a Louisiana Tornado Recovery Fund and is accepting online donations.

Second Harvest Food Bank will deliver 600 meals to the Food Pantry and water and snacks to Joe Brown Park. Second Harvest accepts nonperishable foods (canned vegetables, soups, stews, etc., peanut butter, pasta, rice, breakfast cereal, shelf-stable milk) at its warehouse at 700 Edwards Ave., Elmwood, from 7:30 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday-Friday. It also accepts donations online.
