OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – A convoy of trucks took off from Oklahoma City and headed to Louisiana on Friday, each truck loaded with supplies for Hurricane Ida victims.
Oklahoma City-based nonprofit Feed the Children dispatched a five-semi caravan loaded with a combined 200,000 pounds of supplies that will be donated to around 2,000 people in New Orleans, Lafayette and Houma.
“And we’re providing bottled water, a 25-pound box of food, a 15-pound box of personal care items, cleaning supplies. And we actually have a children’s backpack kit that we’re providing as well that has some toys, hygiene items and a comfort coloring book as well,” said Gary Sloan with Feed the Children.
