With so many recent natural disasters affecting thousands of people throughout the country, here's an easy way you can help.
officers Zac Frommer and Jamie Major are coordinating donations for the public safety personnel in St. Landry Parish, Louisiana and surrounding communities that have been affected by the Mississippi River flooding.
While this area along the Mississippi River is under mandatory evacuation, public safety personnel are required to stay behind to serve their communities. Supplies are needed for those serving, as well as their families.
Here is a list of needed supplies, which should be donated by tomorrow, Tuesday, May 31, in original packaging:
