Floyd County Sheriff Tim Burkhalter joins us for a 10-minute talk about the seventh mission of Rome Ga Cares, this time to Beauregard Parish, La., to help the community recover after being devastated by Hurricane Laura. After speaking with Beauregard Sheriff Mark Herford,  Burkhalter says the community is in major need of Box fans, tarps, infant care (diapers, food, formula), small toys or stuffed animals for children, and cleaning supplies to fill the buckets we will be taking them. 

You can drop off those donations at two locations now through Friday, Sept. 18, at North Rome Church of God off Broad Street, Pleasant Valley North Baptist Church or Pleasant Valley South Baptist Church. Volunteers will unload it from your vehicle from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. The final day to donate is Friday, Sept. 18, and crews will leave Sept. 21 to distribute relief items.

You’re also welcome to donate $75 for a cleaning kit or whatever amount you’d like. To do so, click the sheriff’s website/Rome Ga Cares.

 


Another hurricane means another mission for the Floyd County Sheriff’s Office and Rome Ga Cares. Supplies collected here will be distributed in a community hit hard by Hurricane Laura last week. This picture, from 2018, shows the sheriff’s team on the ground helping storm victims.
