WESTFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Good Samaritans in Westifeld are looking for donations to help flood victims in Louisiana.

Organizer Bethany Liquori told 22News they were originally hoping to collect diapers, wipes, bottles and formula to send to flood victims in Louisiana, but they’re now also looking to send some other basic necessities, saying, “I have a friend in New Orleans who’s from Westfield who did say they are looking for items for the elderly such as denture cream, elderly diapers and electronic chargers for the shelters.”

While many boxes have been filled with the needed supplies, there’s still plenty of time to donate. Items can be dropped off Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday at Netlogix, which is located at 48 Court Street in Westfield.
