Wake County bar, restaurant collecting supplies for Louisiana flooding victims

Raleigh’s Dram & Draught bar and Cary’s Rally Point Sport Grill are collection points this week for supplies that will be delivered to Louisiana flooding victims.

Ten people are dead and more than 40,000 homes have sustained water damage since the flooding started after Friday’s rainfall in southern Louisiana.

Donations can be taken to the Cary restaurant during business hours until Friday and the Raleigh bar until about noon Saturday. Chad Michael McIntyre will depart for Louisiana Saturday to deliver supplies. You can come at 11 a.m. to help load the truck. (McIntyre is the former chef of The Market restaurant in Raleigh who now owns Eco-Tech Draft Systems and installs beer draft systems in restaurants and bars.) McIntyre will leave at 1 p.m. Saturday.

They are seeking: Home Depot gift cards, work gloves (the cheap brown bundle of gloves are great), disposable dust mask, box cutters, large trash bags, medium to large plastic bins, socks (men, women, children sizes), diapers (all sizes), toilet paper; toothbrushes and toothpaste, and bug spray.

Dram & Draught is at 623 Hillsborough St, Raleigh. Rally Point is in Harrison Square, 1837 N Harrison Ave, Cary.
