Westlake supplies headed to Louisiana
A huge cooperative effort by the City of Westlake, Westlake Police Department and Westlake Kiwanis gathered supplies for victims of Hurricane Laura in Louisiana.
Bottled water, non-perishable food items, pet supplies and food, toiletries, household items and new or gently used clothing were gathered and stored at the Westlake police garage. Monetary donations were also accepted.
The accumulated supplies were moved to the Nehemiah Network Warehouse in Cleveland where they were loaded on a tractor trailer truck and shipped to Louisiana.
This was the second truck that has been sent and donations will continue to be collected at the Westlake police garage, 27700 Hilliard Blvd., throughout the month of September.
Supplies were also provided by the Willowick Pet Food Pantry, Willow Praise Church and “100 Youth That Care,” who brought over 2,000 pounds of per food.
