Hurricane Laura: A community coming together


UPDATE: WEST MONROE (8/30/20) — Brookeshires in Monroe and West Monroe helped chill things off by giving out free ice bags to customers.

Many residents have lost food, or cool air, so Brookeshires hoped that these bags of ice would change that.

The company says they were able to give away over 4-thousand bags of ice yesterday.

Officials say they stand with those affected by the storm.

TYLER, Texas, Aug. 29, 2020 – Brookshire Grocery Co. is launching a scan card relief campaign for customers to donate to people who are affected by Hurricane Laura.
