LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

The crisis in Gaza set one Lake Charles woman on a mission to step up and do something to help troops in Israel.

Irma Robin said she receives donations from people in Southwest Louisiana and sends them to the Israel Defense Forces. The donations provide troops with practical needs, such as generators, battery packs and warm meals.

Robin believes it is important for people in Southwest Louisiana to step up and care about this situation overseas.
