The Giving Hope Foundation and the Food Pantry of New Orleans have stepped up to the plate to help with the relief efforts in the flooded areas of Louisiana.  We delivered three pallets of water and clothes on Wednesday 8-17-16.  Second Harvest has recognized us as a disaster relief partner in this terrible crisis.  We are partnering with Convoy of Hope in their efforts to respond to all the needs.  We are accepting donations of any kind at our Distribution center at 13040 I-10 Service Rd New Orleans, LA 70128, and we will be sending a truck to deliver relief supplies every Wednesday as long as the need exist.  We are also organizing volunteers to help friends in need and routing them to serve with Convoy of Hope in distributing supplies and helping people clean out their homes and rebuild their lives.
