The University of Louisiana Monroe is conducting a Community Supply Drive to gather much-needed items for McNeese State University in Lake Charles, which was severely impacted by Hurricane Laura in August.



The campus drive is Oct. 7-16. Donation bins are located on campus at the Student Union Building (SUB), ULM Library and Schulze Dining Hall.


Donations from the community will be accepted from 9 a.m.-4 p.m., Oct. 12-16 in the triangle parking lot located between Bayou Pointe Event Center and Fant-Ewing Coliseum.


The supplies needed include toiletries, cleaning supplies, water, canned goods, non-perishable food items, baby food and formula, pet food, diapers, gloves, trash bags, batteries, shovels, insect repellent, rakes, and brooms.


The supplies will be brought to McNeese on Oct. 20. McNeese is a sister university to ULM as one of the nine universities in the UL System.
