Tampa students help flooded neighbors in Louisiana

Tampa kids help Louisiana flood victims

The bus leaves at 9 a.m. Friday morning destined to help neighbors in need.

"We're taking a ton of food,” said Carrollwood Day School parent Cari Wagner, and organizer of a local Girls in Action group. “We're going out into the neighborhoods. We're going in and feeding them as they're working on their homes.”

Wagner is talking about flooding victims in Louisiana. Here in Tampa Bay, we’ve seen our own flooding issues from Hurricane Hermine. The students, after seeing how bad flooding can be on a community, decided to take action.

“I drew a heart to show them we care,” said one girl.

“It can give them hope,” added another.

Dozens of kids signed three giant banners Thursday morning. The banners will be taken to schools who have been flooded out in Louisiana.

The Tampa students hope the messages cheer up the neighbors.

“I think they’re going to feel really happy that we care,” said one student.

This is not the first time this group of kids has helped others in needs. Last year the students traveled to give toys to flood victims in South Carolina just before Christmas.
