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
e-mail.

  • I live in Slidell and am a Katrina survivor. My home was flooded during the hurricane as well as most of the homes in this area. We live in a small community on the bayou in Slidell. The water in this area was anywhere from a few inches to a 20 foot wall of water depending on how close to the bayou you lived. Most schools in the city were destroyed as well. Our children are platooning at one school right now. Most people are starting over from scratch and living in FEMA trailers while trying to rebuild. We appreciate all that you are doing for us since we are total strangers.
    God bless you and everything you do is appreciated.
