Evacuees at the Ramada Inn Southfield

I don't know if you all are aware that there are about 200 evacuees at the Ramada Inn in Southfield ( 9 mile and Lodge Fwy) from New Orleans. They arrived here on Sunday. I just spoke with the hotel manager and they are in need of the following:

- Toothbrushes
- Toothpaste
- Deodorant
- Soap
- Feminine Products
- Other toiletries
- Volunteers: babysitters, doctors, social workers, tutors etc.
- Baby items desperately: cribs, car seats, diapers, baby wipes etc.
- School supplies: pens, pencils, folders, binders
- Individually wrapped snacks: peanut butter crackers, granola bars,
- Women's and Men's underwear & socks

You can take these items directly to the Ramada Inn.

You can get more information about their needs by calling the hotel
