In the Aftermath of Hurricane Ida - RE/MAX Universal Responds

Offices of RE/MAX Universal are accepting donations to take to relief sites set up in and around Southwest Louisiana. Please drop off items at any location listed below, Mon.-Fri., 9 am - 5 pm. (except Monday, Sept. 6). We are collecting through Sept. 8.

There is widespread need throughout the parishes and reports say that the barrier island community of Grand Isle "uninhabitable." Hurricane Ida is claimed to be the fifth strongest storm to hit the US mainland with the Gulf Coast and southern Louisiana coastal areas hit particularly hard. It could be weeks yet before power is restored and clean-up begins to restore living conditions.

Some of the top items we are collecting for Louisana Relief include:

  • Personal hygiene products (shampoo, brushes, soap, toothbrush & toothpaste, deodorant, ladies products, baby and adult diapers/wipes)
  • Cold night essentials (tents, blankets, pillows, socks, jackets)
  • Non-perishable foods (granola bars, cereal, pop-tarts, canned foods, pasta/rice, baby food/formula, etc.)
  • Kids toys (new)
  • Gift cards (Walmart, Target, Dollar General, Walgreens, etc.)
  • Bottled Water, Juice Boxes, and drinks such as Gatorade
  • Toilet paper and paper towels
  • Bug spray, sunscreen
  • Flashlights/lanterns, batteries
  • Face masks, hand sanitizer/cleaner
  • Chainsaw and generator oil
  • Cleaning supplies (trash bags, bleach, soap, mops, brooms, cleaning towels, soaps, personal hygiene supplies)
