Houston provides one thing again to the victims of Hurricane Ida

HOUSTON, Texas (KIAH) – Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner, with Love from Houston, organized the Paying it Forward charity to help the victims of Hurricane Ida in Louisiana. The trip was from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the town hall. They accepted long-life food, diapers, hygiene kits, baby food, detergents, water, pet food, and roofing supplies.

According to FEMA, more than 35,000 households have applied for the “Blue Roof Program,” which supplies damaged homes with fiber-reinforced sheeting that provides temporary rain protection until permanent repairs are carried out. The supplies donated today will enable Louisiana residents to begin rebuilding their homes.

Mayor Turner says Texas and Louisiana are very closely related.

They’ve been through a lot of hurricanes, so do we, they’re talking about Hurricane Katrina, we’re talking about Hurricane Harvey. Lots of people have come to us to help us do this. Now is the time to help our brothers and sisters.
