Louisiana's state-wide donation drive to aid hurricane victims in Puerto Rico has collected 100 pallets of goods that will be shipped to the island.

The Louisiana National Guard is coordinating the delivery.

The governor's office set up donation points in each parish in the state. In all, they took in 125,000 packages of diapers, 269,000 packages of baby wipes, 57,000 feminine products and other items.

“Louisianans showed their generosity and passion for service in helping our fellow Americans in Puerto Rico,” Gov. John Bel Edwards said in a statement. “I am proud of our state for working together to help in the recovery efforts because we know how much assistance during times of despair can bolster resilience when it is needed most. Donna and I continue to pray for those recovering and offer our continued assistance as they work to rebuild.”
