26 Mar Baby Wipes Provide Relief to Hurricane Survivors

- Loranger, LA
- Donor: Nice-Pak
Hurricane Laura made landfall in Louisiana on August 20, 2020. The sustained winds of the category four hurricane were tied for the strongest storm in Louisiana’s history. The natural disaster took the lives of 77 people and caused more than $19.1 billion in damages. Homes and communities throughout the state were destroyed from the massive flooding and high winds. The Gulf Coast was struck the hardest, and Good360 is working to continue rebuilding efforts in these communities. Thanks to Nice ‘N CLEAN wipe donations from Nice-Pak, Good360 partnered with New Life Missions in Loranger, Louisiana, to deliver these needed goods to communities recovering from both Hurricane Laura and Hurricane Delta. The area was dealing with the impact of Hurricane Laura when Hurricane Delta hit the community just six weeks later.
New Life Missions is a nonprofit organization dedicated to transforming the lives around them. Deb Fillis Ryba, Director of Corporate Social Responsibility at Nice-Pak described their mission, saying “Nice-Pak’s purpose –helping the world stay healthy and well –comes to life through our donations to Good360, and we’re grateful that New Life Missions is getting our wipes to the communities in Louisiana who’ve suffered so much loss.”
The donations of Nice ‘N CLEAN baby wipes were distributed to numerous communities within a 90-mile radius. The families that received the wipes expressed gratitude because receiving the donated items freed up resources for other necessities during their times of financial hardship.
Randy Carruth from I Am Able Ministries said, “The response from volunteers that gave out the wipes was overwhelming with thanks. From their hearts and ours, please thank Nice ‘N CLEAN for their support in donating to help so many in need.” Good360 is grateful for the donations from Nice-Pak and for the help of nonprofit organizations like New Life Missions that continue to work together with our organization to make a difference.
