Volunteers from Ole Miss and Oxford loaded a truck at the Oxford-Lafayette County Chamber of Commerce Thursday headed to Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Generous givers donated bottled water, bleach, non-perishable food items and various other supplies for residents stranded by historic floods in Baton Rouge.

Collin Bullard, traveling in the truck to help deliver the supplies, said he’s seen an outpouring of support from Oxonians.


Louisiana was hammered by more than 24-inches of rain more than a week ago, causing floods that killed more than a dozen people and damaged tens of thousands of homes.
