Help Victims of Hurricane Laura - Miss. Cold Drip

I'm Jon Peterson, COO of Mississippi Cold Drip based in Jackson, Miss. Me and my family are from Sulphur, Lousiana, just outside of Lake Charles, which was devastated by Hurricane Laura. There's been a lack of coverage on the national news, but the truth is that Southwestern Lousiana is truly suffering from incredible devastation in the wake of the storm.

I'm taking some time from my work at Mississippi Cold Drip to drive goods down to my home and see what else I can do. We're working with our retail partners, particularly Kroger, to see if we can buy products at bulk to take back to Southwestern Louisiana as well. 

My family's church is on the ground working to help people out, and they have particularly identified these items:

We need:

Cleaning supplies
Water bottles
Towels and washcloths

Our warehouse is in Jackson, Miss., if you would like to donate non-perishable items, sanitary goods or similar and we will get them to those in need. If you can donate monetarily, please know that all money collected will go to purchasing goods and gas to get to them -- unless we have to rent a truck (which might be a good problem to have) we will spend the money completely on relief efforts.

Thank you!
