TYLER, Texas (KLTV) – The town of Tyler is collecting relief supplies to help survivors of Hurricane Ida.
Donations will be accepted until September 15 at the Downtown Recycling Center, the Glass Recreation Center and the Goodman Museum. Community members will bring relief items to eastern New Orleans to help with the recovery.
Hours of deposit:
Downtown recycling center (414 avenue N. Bois D’Arc)
Monday to 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.)
