Members of the Abbeville Boy Scouts of America Troop 85 are lending a hand to neighbors in southeast Louisiana.

Wednesday, scouts held a supply drive at the Pere Megret Center on West Vermilion Street.

The Boy Scouts were able to collect items to send to communities affected by Hurricane Ida.

They accepted non-perishable items like snacks, canned goods, toiletries, etc.

"Really the inspiration for this was last year whenever we got hit by hurricanes, a lot of people donated for us," explained scout Drew Meaux. "And by doing this and giving to them it helps them whenever they're in a time of need and we're giving back to our community."
