Bikers rally to back Hurricane Ida victims
MOBILE, Ala. (BIKER DAD) — Alabama bikers are rallying to back Hurricane Ida victims. As they always do on the Gulf Coast when disaster strikes, the bikers and others are collecting donations and rolling out to New Orleans.
One truck left Tuesday morning already from Bob’s Downtown Diner. They’ll keep rolling as long as they keep getting donations. Second Harvest Food Bank in New Orleans tells me they need non-perishable food items, especially things like canned tuna, other canned meats and peanut butter. They say there’s a huge need for protein that can be eaten straight out of the container without cooking. That’s because many people are without power and may remain that way for quite some time.

What they don’t need is your old clothes. But they also need things like diapers and baby wipes. The folks at Bob’s also will collect other items including :contact lens fluid, wet wipes, paper products. They’re also collecting tarps, bleach, toiletries, water bottles and jugs, baby formula, and much more. Water and batteries are especially needed.
Bob’s is located at 263 North St. Francis Street in Mobile. You can also connect with them on social media.
