The floods that devastated Louisiana this weekend spared Orleans parish, but as of this writing, Acadia, Ascension, East Baton Rouge, East Feliciana, Iberia, Lafayette, Livingston, Pointe Coupee, St. Helena, St. Landry, Tangipahoa and Vermilion parishes had all been added to the federal disaster declaration list.

In New Orleans, the damage and trauma of mass flooding hits close to home, especially when said flooding is occurring just an hour or so up the road. To that end, local businesses have been turning out to support their fellow Louisiana residents. Here’s a list of businesses and events that are pitching in to aid flood relief. If you’d like to help, major needs include toiletries, bed sheets, water, non-perishable food, diapers, feminine hygiene products, cleaning supplies, pet food, pet crates and pet bedding.

The following businesses are accepting donations until the end of business hours on Aug 18.

Church Alley Coffee Shop 1618 Oretha Castle Haley Blvd.
Dashing Bicycles 1234 N. Broad St.
