A group of mayors and other elected officials from Florida heard about the impact of the recent flooding on the City of Gonzales, and traveled here to give away cleaning supplies, baby supplies, canned food items, water, lines, clothes, bathroom items and much more.

City of Gonzales Fire Chief Tracey Normand oversaw the setup of the distribution area, along with members of his fire team.

On Wednesday, September 14, they met with Mayor Barney Arceneaux before setting up a distribution area behind the Gonzales Fire Department building on Orice Roth on Thursday, September 15. Items were distributed to any parish resident looking for assistance.

“We cannot thank this group enough,” said Mayor Arceneaux. “They call themselves Mayors that Care, and have set up an organization to continue this message of giving back. I am honored to stand beside them.”
