Catholic Charities Team up With Goodwill for Blue Tarp Drive
Catholic Charities of Acadiana is doing all they can to collect and distribute some of the desperately needed items for their communities due to back to back hurricanes in Louisiana.
They have an official link to Amazon where you can directly purchase items to donate. They include B-Air Grizzly tarps in several different sizes, Fiberlock Shockwave RTU Disinfectant, Commercial Plastic Sheeting, Kraft Tool GG018 Floor/Form Scraper, Estwing Hammers, Big Bully Flooring Scraper,Phillips #2 Power Bits, Carbide Oscillating Multitool Saw Blades, Ear Plugs, Aluminum Extension Ladders, and so much more. Any items purchase will go to folks who are really in need right now.
Catholic Charities has also teamed up with Goodwill Acadiana for the "Goodwill Blue" Tarp Drive, which has been extended after Hurricane Laura and Delta devastated southwest Louisiana. In their official Facebook page below, you can see locations around Acadiana that, at this time, have the tarps for purchase. If you choose to help out and purchase tarps, they can be dropped off at any Acadiana Goodwill location. They also state "If you were lucky enough to make it through the storm unscathed, please consider giving back to those who were less fortunate. This small token goes a long way!"
They also have volunteer opportunities that include: Data Management Call Center, Damage Assessment, Disaster Cleanup/ Muck Out, Tarp Team, Chainsaw Crew, Debris Removal, Distribution Centers, Reception Centers, and Food Service Team Members.
