WEST MONROE, La. (KNOE) - KNOE 8 News is teaming up with First West Baptist Church to stuff a truck full of supplies for Hurricane Ida victims.

Our friends in South Louisiana are still in great need of supplies. Help us fill an 18-wheeler trailer starting at 5 a.m. Friday at the First West Thrift Store parking lot in West Monroe.

  • Address: 1 Stella/Mill St., West Monroe, LA 71291

The site will be open for donations on the following dates:

  • Friday, September 24 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
  • Saturday, September 25 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
  • Sunday, September 26 from 8 a.m. until noon

These are the items that are most in need at this time:

  1. Paper products
  2. Snacks and non-refrigerated breakfast foods (items high in protein are especially appreciated)
  3. Basic toiletries (toothpaste, toothbrush, shampoo, conditioner, body wash/soap, deodorant)
  4. Rakes, brooms, mops, gloves, trash bags
  5. Laundry detergent, dish detergent (powder please)

Please do not bring Clorox, water, or any other large liquid containers. These items are heavy to move and spills can ruin other donations. The Louisiana Baptist Convention Disaster Relief group is staged in South Louisiana and ready to receive our donations to begin distributing to those in need.
