Supply drive items collected in parish delivered to Puerto Rico
St. Charles Parish residents donated supplies to Puerto Rico for the residents affected by Hurricane Maria.

“When members of the administration proposed this idea to some of our employees, the response was a resounding ‘yes.’ Our employees and community have an excellent philanthropic history and culture,” said St. Charles Parish Executive Director Anthony Ayo. “These characteristics make an undertaking like this more achievable and productive and as a resident and government employee, I really appreciate that.”

The drive was held in conjunction with the state of Louisiana’s supply drive for Maria victims in Puerto Rico. Gov. John Bel Edwards announced the effort on Sept. 27, citing Puerto Rican officials who said the island faces a humanitarian crisis without more direct assistance.

The Louisiana National Guard will deliver the supplies to Puerto Rico.
