Market Basket Collecting Non-Perishables And Water For Flood Victims At All 34 Locations
Thousands of Louisianians are living a nightmare, due to the historic flooding that has brought 30% of the state to its knees. Market Basket is looking to do their part by sending badly needed food and beverages to our neighbors in need, and you can help. Right now, the grocery giant is accepting non-perishable food, water, non-food and personal hygiene necessities for Louisiana flood victims at all 34 stores in Southeast Texas, Southwest Louisiana and West Central Louisiana.
The collection drive will continue through September 3, 2016, at which time donations will be shipped to various relief agencies for immediate distribution. The President of Market Basket, Skylar Thompson, explained
“This is Market Basket’s way of being able to help all the communities and families that have been displaced and devastated by these unprecedented floods in Louisiana.”
He continued, “With our locations in Texas and Louisiana, we have a store just minutes away from hundreds of thousands of residents, which will make it easy for people to donate. And we have in-store most of items that the people in affected areas need.”
