Collecting For Those Who’ve Lost Everything

Everything from baby food and diapers to underwear and water are being collected for the victims of the Louisiana floods in a collection drive started by the Rainbow PUSH Coalition on Chicago’s South Side.

The organization is looking for unused clothing and shoes as well as new toiletries, feminine products and baby items for those in need. A large truck is set to leave for Louisiana Saturday afternoon.
