Baton Rouge groups looking for 'ABCs and Diapers' to help OK victims
BATON ROUGE,LA (NBC33) — There is a new drive to help kids affected by the devastating tornados that hit Moore, Oklahoma.
Baton Rouge Parents Magazine and Oklahoma's Metrofamily Magazine need your help to collect supplies for kids.
They're looking for crayons, books, diapers and everything in between.
The groups teamed up with Baton Rouge area churches and schools to collect supplies until Wednesday. Then on Thursday May 20, the group will go to oklahoma. The idea is to help parents struggling after the storm to rebuild their kids spirits with new toys and art supplies.
Amy Plaisance, Publisher of Baton Rouge Parents Magazine, said, "Arts and all of that is very creative especially for children that go through disasters. This is going to give them an outlet you know to release some of those emotions or feelings that they have been going through. "
The effort is called ABCs and Diapers and therefore the group is looking for specific items that parents would want to have for their children but may not be able to purchase right now:
A: Animals (stuffed), Action Figures
B: Batteries, Band-Aids, Bottles, Tooth Brushes, Hair Brushes, Backpacks, Baby Supplies, Bottles, Baby Wipes, Books, Board games
C: Sippy Cups, Crayons, Coloring Books, Arts and Crafts
