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.

Dropoff times:

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.)

Monday through Friday 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Saturday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Goodman Museum (624 N. Broadway Ave.)

Tuesday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The City asks that donations be new/unopened, food items should be those that do not require refrigeration as many do not yet have electricity and if dropping off large quantities, already boxed items are most easily transported to the distribution site.
