Several local and national organizations have put a call out to request donations and volunteers in the wake of Louisiana’s historic flooding, which has so far killed six, according to the Weather Channel, and forced rescues of 20,000 more.

Sheriff Marlin Gusman also announced that his staff will be collecting clothes and other donations at the Orleans Parish Sheriff’s Office, located in Mid-City.

Rouses Markets is also partnering with Second Harvest Food Bank, and all stores are accepting cash and donations of non-perishable food, cleaning supplies and toiletries.

For those who can’t make it to a cash register at the store, donations are also being accepted online.
