BATON ROUGE DONATION HUGE SUCCESS FOR WM EMPLOYEES
September 6, 2016…….Keep The Rez Beautiful would like to thank everyone who donated goods for the recent KRB “Operation Pack the Trailer,” to help Waste Management drivers in Baton Rouge!
The donations were delivered to the Waste Management operations center in Walker, LA on August 27. Ronnie May, KRB volunteer drove the trailer to Baton Rouge and assisted in the delivery. The new KRB trailer is a new donation from Keep Mississippi Beautiful. Also, a very special thank you to the Reservoir Fire Station “guys” who assisted in the collection of the items, and others who donated their time and efforts. “We couldn’t have done it without you assisting us in the collection.” stated Jeannine May, KRB Director.
The donations, valued at over $4,000.00, included toiletry items, pillows, blankets, baby items and more! Over 51 WM drivers lost everything, and have been picking up trash and other household items for weeks that everyone else lost, according the WM officials in Baton Rouge.
“Our entire Waste Management Gulf Coast Team is extremely thankful to the Keep the Reservoir Beautiful affiliate and Keep Miss. Beautiful for their incredible generosity,” said Tricia Farace, Community Relations Representative. “The flooding disaster in south LA is of epic proportions. Some estimates indicate over 100,000 families and businesses were flooded. Waste Management alone saw 50 of our families and countless extended family members flooded by this disastrous storm. We have mobilized to help our employees and these contributions will go a long way to assist in soothing our families during this difficult time. THANK YOU Keep the Rez Beautiful and Keep Miss. Beautiful for your support.
