East Alabama hospital holding relief drive for flood victims

An east Alabama hospital is collecting items for Louisiana flood victims.

The East Alabama Medical Center is holding a flood relief drive for hospital employees affected by the floods in Louisiana last month.

Clothing donations won't be collected by the center. Instead, The center will be collecting cash, household items, toiletries, cleaning and school supplies, pet food, cases of water and other items.

An estimated 150,000 homes across south Louisiana were ravaged by the floodwaters.

A hospital chaplain came up with the idea to reach out to the Opelika-Auburn area for flood relief after seeing a story on Facebook about a Tennessee hospital, which sent supplies to hospitals in affected areas.

            Donations will be sent to seven hospitals in Baton Rouge.
