How to Help The Louisiana Flood Victims {Drop Offs, Donations and More} :: Moms Helping Moms

There is no doubt that the August 2016 flooding in South Louisiana, specifically near Baton Rouge, has been devastating. Many of us want to help but simply don’t know how. At the request of our readers, we’ve compiled this list of ways to help. We’ll keep it as updated as possible in the coming days – please Louisiana Flood Victimsleave a comment if you know of any drop off or donation opportunities that are missing. Many families in South Louisiana have lost absolutely everything, and the need for help and service will last for a while. All contributions of all sizes will make a positive impact on those who are suffering right now.

If you have anything to add in the coming days or edits to the below information, please leave it in a comment and we will be sure to keep this updated in the coming weeks! The needs in South Louisiana will persist for some time, but together we can make a big difference for our friends in Baton Rouge and Lafayette.

***Be sure to also review Resources and Info for Louisiana Flood Victims (intended more so for those who are displaced), as well as 3 ways to help Baton Rouge immediately {from Louisiana or afar}***

Cash Donation Opportunities

NOTE :: we always recommend using your judgment and verifying the organization before sending cash donations.

For $11, ensure that a baby in need receives diapers and wipes. In exchange, Cassie Treiul Photography {based in Baton Rouge} and her son will mail you a handmade bracelet. It’s a deep blue color to resemble the dark skies we all witnessed over the past week and three gold charms to remind us of the end in sight. To stay humble, helpful and hopeful.

    Im a territory rep for The Blood Center and I can tell you we’ve been severely impacted by the storm and our blood supply is critically low. If anyone can host a blood drive at a location, please contact me at 985-788-3285. So many blood drives have been cancelled and many more will continue to be. Please help. Maybe a shelter whose housing a large amount of people will allow us to bring our blood mobile and collect some blood. Thanks so much for your ideas.

  9. Courtney Kruse August 15, 2016 at 8:21 am #

    For those donating clothes, it is a HUGE help to have them sorted and bagged by size and season. So, Girls 3T summer. Women’s L summer. Digging through mountains of donations, which are generally not organized, is exhausting on a good day. On the days and weeks that these people will be having… it’s an unneeded stress.

    Also, bag and label sheet sizes.

    Do not send toiletries… by the time the folks get them, they’ll already have 50 toothbrushes given to them from people closer to home.

    Make sure the stuff you send is in GOOD repair. If it’s not good enough for you to use it’s not good enough for them to use either. There is a VAST difference between donations for disaster people and thrift store donations. Disaster folks don’t have anything, not even needle and thread to sew on a button. It is incredibly overwhelming to find stuff you could use only to realize you don’t have the skills/supplies to fix it… Sending stuff that has to be fixed is adding a burden to the folks who are already overwhelmed as they now have to deal with your trash on top of everything else.

    Send money, not stuff. Seriously. Have stuff to donate? Have a yard sale and then send the money from that. The local resources are simply not sufficient to deal with the mountains and mountains of clothes and housewares (often in bad repair) and to get them to the people who need them.

    Love animals? Consider contacting a local veterinary office and finding out if they have disaster animals receiving care with them. Pay their bill for them if they are there. People’s pets are part of the family and they are often injured during disasters… Which is an expense that is on top of everything else and outside of a home insurance claim.

    The best way to help, at least in my experience, is find a friend of a friend who was affected. Help them. You can then find out what they need/want and target your giving to them specifically. Money is often the best… even with good insurance, their expenses will be overwhelming. Their heads will be spinning for weeks…. and until the flooding recedes they won’t have any idea what they will be doing anyways. And this will be true for months after, too.

    If you do find someone specifically to help, please don’t be offended if they don’t know what they need. They will not need anything and they will need everything all at the same time. And it’s OK. Don’t ask them what they need. Consider what you would need in their place – and then offer to do it. And then do it.

    Also, if you send stuff and don’t receive a thank you note, please don’t be upset. I know I tried at the beginning but after a while…. It takes a lot of emotional energy to tell people that you’re OK and thanks for the donation. Especially for people who are not used to receiving “charity” from others. And for folks who have no earthly idea what the next step is going to be…

    And for all the disaster people … thank you. Your generosity is overwhelming and awesome.

    sincerely, a previous FEMA # recipient

    I have a queen size mattress please let me know if I can donate it any place

  14. ChynnaBlue August 15, 2016 at 10:05 am #

    If you live out of state, I strongly recommend sending money, not things. Well-intentioned people often send a lot of things and dealing with stuff becomes a secondary problem the helpers need to resolve.

    Dear Ashley,
    I live in Atlanta and would like to begin collecting items that I will have shipped down via a driver with a trailer (will find one on U ship). Do you have a recommendation for a place to have things shipped or dropped off? Please let me know.

    Thank you,

      I also have things to donate if there is a truck anywhere the Norfolk/Virginia Beach area. It would include big items like a crib, stroller, etc., so it would be too big to mail. Let me know if you hear of anyone “trucking” things and are willing to pick my stuff up. Thank you so much.

    Is there an address for out of state handcrafted soap makers to ship donations of handcrafted soap to floor victims?. I keep read that Red Cross and United Way are rejecting donations by “non contracted” organizations.

    Hi there,
    I am out of state, but I have a bin full of maternity clothes, Dr. Browns bottles & bottle warmer, baby food maker (unused) and some nursing supplies (milk bags, pump and attachments and sterilizing bags) I have a lot of other things, but thought maybe these would be most needed. Is this something that I can send and where should I send it?
