How to Help Victims of the Baton Rouge Flood.

Historic rainfall and flooding have impacted thousands of people and many communities across southern Louisiana. Some groups have stepped up and are organizing relief efforts for flood victims.

Here’s a look at what some organizations are doing and how you can help.

Red Cross: If you want to volunteer, call the Red Cross at 855-489-2528 or sign up at http://volunteerlouisiana.gov.

Zeta Phi Beta: The Rho Epsilon chapter of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority has started a GoFundMe account to raise money for families and students in the Baton Rouge area who have been affected by flooding.

The group hopes to raise $10,000 and donate $500 to each family or student to help with the financial burden that they will face while trying to recover from the flood.

“This cause is special to the ladies of Rho Epsilon because Baton Rouge is our home and many of our friends and community members have become victims of this flood,” the organization said.

Rouses Markets: In partnership with Second Harvest Food Bank, Rouses Markets are accepting cash donations and donations of non-perishable food, cleaning supplies and toiletries. You can make donations at the cash register or online.

Orleans Parish Sheriff’s Office: The sheriff’s office is accepting clean clothing for flood victims beginning Monday morning. All clothing should be bagged or boxed and can be delivered to the Sheriff’s Office training building at 819 South Broad Street.
