Local business gathers supplies for tornado victims

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Employees at Saint Joseph Hospice in Hattiesburg are working to gather supplies to help the tornado ravaged city of Louisville. 

Workers at the hospice center are doing their part to collect items on the list, including; cleaning supplies, baby and adult diapers, garbage bags, rubbermaid totes, sunscreen as well as lawn equipment.

For anyone wishing to drop off any items, the center will take supplies until the end of the month, and they can be dropped off at the hospice center at 105 Asbury Circle in Hattiesburg.

"It's my understanding that after katrina they were a tremendous support to the people on the gulf coast, and we do have offices on the gulf coast. So we are trying to payback the generosity from the people in that community and they have tremendous needs at this time," said Janine Gares, Patient Care Representative. 

Supplies needed are as followed:

Bleach, window cleaner, Comet, washing powder, dish soap, lyrsol spray, bug repellant, pillows, towels, wash cloths, dish towels, rubbing alcohol, peroxide, shampoo, sunscreen, sheets and pillowcases, baby and adult diapers, yard tools, heavy duty garbage bags, garbage cans, rubbermaid totes.
