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

  • Sponges

  • Comet

  • Toilet bowl cleaner

  • Trash bags

  • Pine sol
