Help victims of Hurricane Katrina in Slidell

HURRICANE KATRINA - Slidell Relief Fund

In response to the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina, the City of Derby has announced its “adoption” of a community located in the New Orleans area. The City is in the process of collecting donations for the residents of Slidell, La., a town of approximately 25,000 residents located 30 minutes northeast of New Orleans.
The Slidell area was one of the hardest hit by the effects of the storm. Area officials have estimated that as much as 85% of the city’s buildings may have been damaged or destroyed, and flooding continues to be a problem.
The City hopes to help this suburban community by collecting donations and eventually providing specific necessities. Tax-deductible cash donations are now being accepted at Derby City Hall, 611 Mulberry. Checks should be made out to the “Slidell Relief Fund.” Donations cannot be made for specific individuals. All money and goods will be delivered to city officials for further distribution.
Items that have been requested by city officials in Slidell include the following: dishes, silverware, bowls, plastic storage containers, small kitchen appliances, cups/glasses, pots/pans, sheets, pillow cases, pillows, blankets, bed spreads, etc. Many residents are rebuilding from scratch and will need a wide range of items. All items need to be new; used items will not be accepted. Please take donations to the Derby Wal-Mart, 2020 N. Southeast Blvd.
If your organization is interested in coordinating an event or providing volunteers, please contact Councilmember Cheryl Bannon at 789-8356 or by
