Delivering Good was founded in 1985 to respond to disasters, and over the last 32 years we have worked to help many people recovering from earthquakes, fires, floods and hurricanes. Read and watch below to learn more about our recent disaster responses in Columbia, SC and Baton Rouge, LA.
LOUISIANA RELIEF EFFORTS
In August 2016, prolonged rainfall in the southern part of Louisiana resulted in catastrophic flooding. Delivering Good secured nearly $8.5 million of apparel and home goods from retailers and manufacturers to help people in Baton Rouge recover. Working with the Urban League of LA and local community leaders, we helped over 5,000 families and other people in need.

“This is about giving more than a new couch, clothes or even a present under the tree, this is about giving hope, and I couldn't be more proud," said Columbia, SC Mayor Stephen Benjamin
In October 2015, to help families affected by the historic South Carolina floods Delivering Good collected $ 1.9 million of product. Donations included new bedding, toys, furniture, and clothing from familiar brands Lady Antebellum's Heartland home goods, Aeropostale, Gap, Gerber Childrenswear, IKEA, Melissa and Doug, Toys"R"Us, Kimlor Mills, CHF Industries, Franco Manufacturing and much more.
