Locals Helping Oklahoma Tornado Victims

Work in the New Orleans area to bring help to the tornado victims in Oklahoma will run through the Memorial Day weekend.

Jasper Contractors are leading a massive tornado relief effort to provide basic supplies and essentials.

Stephanie Lammers says Jasper Contractors wants people to drop off donations to their Metairie office (3409 N. I-10 Service Rd. W.) at I-10 and the Causeway before May 29th, “These victims need baby supplies, and powdered formula, trash bags, and toiletry items. Blankets and any kind of under garments.”

Lammers says Jasper even makes house calls, “All you do is call our local number (504-681-7117) and we`ll schedule a pick up time.”

Jasper Contractors is a nationwide roofing company with locations in New Orleans and Baton Rouge.

They will be closed Sunday and Monday for Memorial Day.

The Archdiocese of New Orleans is collecting financial support.

Arch Bishop Gregory Aymond says sending money is the fastest and most efficient way to help, “At this point it would not be helpful to send anything other than money. Because with the money they can then get what they need.”

The Archdiocese wants people to mark donations as “Oklahoma Tornado Relief.”

Donations can be sent to:

Archdiocese of New Orleans

7887 Walmsley Ave.

New Orleans, LA 70125
