From the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff's Office
We have been approached by several residents looking for a way to donate supplies to families in the area affected by Hurricane Laura.
A group of our Corrections Division deputies collected supplies and have already made one delivery to Southwest Louisiana, but the need is still great.
They will be making another delivery at the end of this month, and the public can drop off donations to be included in that delivery. Donations must be dropped off prior to Sept. 20 to be included in the delivery.
Items needed include (but are not limited to) canned food, cleaning supplies, new clothing and new toys (can’t accept used because of Covid-19 concerns), bottled water and bottled sports drinks.
Donations can be dropped off Monday thru Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the following locations:
· St. Tammany Justice Center – 701 North Columbia Street, Covington (bin outside by the court security wellness check table)
· Pearl River Training Center - 39395 Pine Street, Pearl River
· STPSO Administrative Office – 300 Brownswitch Road, Slidell
· St. Tammany Parish Jail - 1200 Champagne St, Covington (items can be dropped off at this location 24 hours a day, seven days a week)
