MLS off to Louisiana

Destin-based Mission Love Seeds is collecting items to take to Denham Springs, Louisiana, to help people begin the clean up. They were asked to help by a friend who lives there who had one of the dozens of houses underwater. Help is needed by volunteers to remove wet and muddy furniture and rip the wooden floors out of the houses.

Sunday, Aug. 21, a team made a one-day trip to Louisiana and began helping with the cleanup. To view photos of their trip and work and keep updated on more trips you might want to join, visit missionloveseeds.org or view Mission Love Seeds Charity on Facebook.

The team was shocked to see the results of all the flooding in Louisiana. “It is so much worse than we have seen on TV,” Barbi Carroll, president of MLS, told The Log. “We got so much accomplished in one day. Everyone worked so hard. Thanks to our amazing team.”

Needed supplies include bottled water, bleach, paper towels, cleaning rags, multi-purpose cleaners, plastic gloves, trash bags and heavy duty trash bags, large and over size covered plastic containers for holding items, cleaning supplies, shovels, racks, and sheet rock.

Items may be dropped off at the Destin fire station on Airport Road. Make sure they are marked for Mission Love Seeds.

If you would like to donate money, visit missionloveseeds.org to use credit card or mail a check to Mission Love Seeds, 55 Country Club Drive, Destin FL 32541.
