ROANOKE (WSLS 10) - More than a month after catastrophic flooding in Louisiana, a Roanoke church is still answering the call for help.

Members of Harvest Baptist Church, in Southeast Roanoke, will collect donations for a third and final time on Saturday, October 1.

The goal is to fill a 26-foot truck to deliver to Baton Rouge next week.

Organizers are set up at two local Wal-Marts and say the generosity has been touching.

"It gives you a good feeling inside just to see the response, the positive response in the communities and the love that people have for one another is just awesome to see," said Amy Graninger, flood relief organizer.

Items most needed are medical supplies, baby items and financial donations to cover travel expenses.

Additional needed supplies include nonperishable food, batteries, flashlights, pet supplies, sports drinks, pots and pans.
