Donations for Hurricane Isaac victims

CALCASIEU PARISH, LA (KPLC) -

The City of Sulphur organized a Hurricane Isaac Relief Drive to help donate necessary items to storm victims in the southeastern part of Louisiana.

Sulphur Mayor Chris Duncan said the community has stepped up to donate items. The drive started on Friday, August 31 and Duncan said many people have come to donate anything from food to clothing.

"The donations have been great!" Duncan said. "It's really been the phone calls today. We have a big outreach in the community, not only here in the Sulphur Lake Charles area. I have Oakdale, Beaumont and all that calling so it's great."

To donate toward the hurricane relief drive, you can drop off goods to the Old Tyme Variety Store building in Sulphur on the corner of Ruth Street and Cypress. Donations will be accepted until 10 p.m. Saturday, September 1. 

On Sunday, donations can be dropped off from noon to 8 p.m. 

Lake Charles is partnering up Sulphur. Donations will be accepted at the Civic Center starting Sunday, Sept. 2 from noon until 7 p.m.

Starting on Monday, Sept. 3, the Sulphur location will take donations until 7 p.m.
