Spiller Furniture in Tuscaloosa, Alabama Organizes Hurricane Ida Relief for Louisiana Victims
Hurricane Ida was the second-most damaging hurricane to strike the state of Louisiana. It made landfall as a powerful Category 4 storm with maximum sustained winds of 150 mph.
In the wake of the tragedy, Spiller Furniture and Mattress and Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa are teaming up to provide relief efforts for victims of Hurricane Ida in Louisiana.
Spiller Furniture and Mattress has 13 stores and each location will serve as drop-off points for supplies. Spiller will collect supplies from all locations and then drive them down in one of their delivery trucks. The 13 locations are:
- Columbus, Mississippi
- Starkville, Mississippi
Jesus' Place Church in Springfield, Louisiana will serve as the location for delivery. The supplies will be distributed from there.
Rev. Mike DePhillips is also asking for crews with chain saws to help in the area. He says to be sure to bring enough gas to get back to a gas station because gas is either unavailable there or very scarce. Places that do have gas have lines over a quarter-mile long in some places.
Below is a list of needed supplies:
- Breakfast bars
- Cookie snacks
- Non-perishable canned meats veggies
- Peanut butter
- Paper plates
- Paper towels
- Toilet paper
- Plastic utensils
- Jugs of water
- Cleaning supplies
- Gas cans
If you plan to stay, you’ll need a camper or motor home that is self-contained and can run off LP gas and batteries.
If you or someone you know would like to donate or have questions about relief efforts, you're being asked to contact Rob More at Robmoore@spillerfurniture.com.
