OPSO AND PARTNERS DELIVER 19 PALLETS OF WATER AND FOOD ITEMS TO HURRICANE IDA VICTIMS IN GOLDEN MEADOW

NEW ORLEANS - 09-24-2021

The Orleans Parish Sheriff's Office today delivered a total of 19 pallets of water and other food items to Hurricane Ida victims in Golden Meadow.

The shipment of water, chips and energy bars was donated by Whole Foods Market to Catnip Foundation-Big Sky Ranch, which called on the Sheriff's Office to assist with delivery. Whole Foods had pledged 12 pallets, but as the shipment was being loaded, added another seven pallets, bringing the total to 19 pallets.

The donation filled the backs of three OPSO flat-bed trucks which were escorted by OPSO marked units to the Lafourche Parish line where the escort was taken over by units from the Lafourche Parish Sheriff's Office. The escort ended at the First Baptist Church in Golden Meadow.

Sheriff Marlin Gusman said, "Our neighbors in Lafourche and Terrebonne parishes helped New Orleanians during Katrina, and we all need to do more to support them as they deal with the devastating impacts of Hurricane Ida."
