A shipping company is providing dry and refrigerated storage containers to Louisiana communities impacted by Hurricane Laura.

CMA CGM announced on Monday, October 5, that they would provide critical supplies to those communities most in need.

The storage containers were delivered on Wednesday, September 30 in coordination with FEMA, Southwest Louisiana United Way and Central Louisiana Baptists Disaster Relief.

The containers will be used to store and distribute food and supplies in impacted communities throughout Louisiana, including Lake Charles, Deridder and Alexandria, the company says. The refrigerated containers will also include self-powered generator units where needed.

"Our hearts go out to the many families impacted by Hurricane Laura, and we are humbled to play a small part in helping with the rebuilding efforts," said CMA CGM America President Ed Aldridge in a press release. "We have worked closely with communities along the Gulf for decades so we know how resilient they are and hope that our contribution will assist with relief efforts and the distribution of goods."
