Louisiana university collects Florence disaster supplies

September 19, 2018

NATCHITOCHES, La. (AP) — Students at a university in Louisiana are helping residents of the Carolinas as they begin cleanup after Hurricane Florence.

Northwestern State University biology professor Dr. Curt Phifer is spearheading an effort to collect supplies for cleanup buckets. The buckets will then be taken to affected disaster areas through the United Methodist Center on Relief in Baldwin. Phifer says he’s asking every campus group to put together at least one bucket to donate to the relief effort.

Empty buckets are available to each organization in the Student Government Association office on the first floor of the Student Union. Each bucket has a list of specific items totaling about $75 that says how to assemble the bucket. Assembled buckets can be returned to the SGA office by Sept. 24.
