disaster rebuilding and recovery

Relief and rebuilding efforts continue in the Lake Charles area after multiple storms ravaged the area in 2020.

Supplies Still Needed for SW Louisiana Recovery Efforts

The recovery effort in southwest Louisiana is continuing. Some areas of Lake Charles still have much work to do. There is a need for cleaning supplies.


If you or your church is willing to help gather these supplies, for those east of the Mississippi the drop-off will be at First Presbyterian Scottlandville. For those west of the Mississippi, the drop-off will be at St. Andrew Lake Charles. If you can help, please contact Patrice Butler (pabutler8@yahoo.com), Chip Chiphe (chipchiphe@cox.net), Nanette Cagney (cagney13@yahoo.com) or Debbie Serra (dhserra@gmail.com) to arrange drop-offs.


The following supplies are needed:

  • Disinfectant wipes

  • Dish detergent

  • Fabuloso

  • Clorox spray

  • Sponges

  • Comet

  • Toilet bowl cleaner

  • Trash bags

  • Pine sol

  • Washing powder

  • Ammonia

  • Window & glass cleaner

  • Spic & Span

  • Cleaning Vinegar


We'd like to gather all supplies no later than February 19.  We appreciate the support of all the churches in the PSL as we continue our recovery efforts.
