HOUSTON - On Thursday morning, two truckloads of much-needed flood relief supplies made their way to Baton Rouge from Houston.
Right now, thousands of people in Louisiana are trying to pick up the pieces after being hit by devastating flooding rains.
Last week, Mayor Sylvester Turner called on churches, mosques, synagogues and local first responders to open their doors and become drop off locations for donations.
Countless Houstonians opened their wallets and hearts to help.
“On short notice,” said Mayor Turner, “Houstonians have stepped up in an incredible way. It reflects the heart of Houstonians. We are a big city with a huge heart.”
More truckloads of supplies are expected to be dispatched in the future. For a list of drop off locations and needed supplies, click here.
