Posted at 4:47 PM, Aug 20, 2016

For those wanting to help out victims of the flooding in Louisiana, but feel they can’t make a trip there, other options to supply aid have been made available.

A group of Louisiana-born Nashville songwriters have been holding a flood relief drive on Music Row this week called the “Geaux Music Row! Flood Relief Drive.”

They’ve asked the community to bring donations to help with the cause.

Items needed include:

  • Cleaning supplies (bleach, household cleaners, paper towels, etc.)
  • Toiletries (deodorant, toothbrush, toothpaste, toilet paper, etc.)
  • Plastic storage containers/bins
  • Debris removal equipment (box cutters, hammers, contractor trash bags, gloves, bubble wrap, tape etc.)
  • Clothing (school uniforms needed – maroon/khaki, blue/khaki sizes 4/5T – large)
  • School supplies (pencils, pens, notebooks, paper, binders, school bags, etc.)
  • Non-perishable food items (canned goods, dried beans, rice)
  • Water (bottles and gallon jugs)
  • Pillow and blankets
  • Phone chargers

The following drop-off locations were given:

  • ASCAP (2 Music Square West)
