Sandy Relief Drive - KLFY News 10

Sandy Relief Drive


Like most, if not all of you, we all have heard something about the devastation caused by ‘superstorm" Sandy. Med Express has set up a Strike Team in the New Jersey Area, offering assistance and helping where there is need.

In the different areas that's been hit by "superstorm" Sandy, there are people literally walking around begging for any assistance they can get. Our thoughts immediately turned to figuring out how we here in St.Landry Parish and other surrounding areas can help. So our answer is to start a relief drive. It will be simple and direct. We'll collect items at our location and then personally deliver them to the different areas where they'll go directly to people in immediate need.

If you'd like to be involved in this relief effort, we're collecting:

Children vitamins                                Pillows

Diapers                                                  Towels

Feminine Products                              Band Aids

Body Wash                                            First Aid Kit

Hand Sanitizer                                       Ace Bandages

Non Perishable Food Items                 Neosporin              

Bottled water                                        Work Gloves

Flashlights                                              Hammers

Blankets                                                  Batteries

You can bring the items to our location during normal business hours. As we accumulate things we'll personally deliver then for distribution. In addition, to kick off our drive Med Express along with our troops will be donating 50 boxes.

I'd like to personally thank all of you for your support for so many years, and for making me so proud of this community. Our Help for Haiti project back in 2010 was a success, thanks to you all. One of the most rewarding things about this profession is having the opportunity to get to know so many of you and your families.
