TYLER, Texas (KLTV) - The City of Tyler is collecting relief supplies to provide assistance to survivors of Hurricane Ida.
Donations will be accepted until Sept. 15 at the Downtown Recycling Center, the Glass Recreation Center and the Goodman Museum. Community members will be taking the relief items to the east side of New Orleans to assist with recovery.
Downtown Recycling Center (414 N. Bois D’Arc Ave.)
Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Saturday 8 a.m. to noon
Glass Recreation Center (501 W. 32nd St.)

Saturday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Goodman Museum (624 N. Broadway Ave.)
