Georgia businesses offer help tied to Louisiana flooding

Metro Atlanta businesses are among those providing aid in the wake of recent devastating flooding in Louisiana.

Here’s a sampling of some of what they are doing:

The Home Depot Foundation reported $700,000 in grants for disaster assistance in flooded communities. The retailer also said it created a task force to get water, meals and supplies to the region.

Georgia-Pacific said it has given $50,000 to a flood relief fund in Baton Rouge and will give up to another $50,000 to match contributions from employees.

Atlanta-based Roadie, a delivery network that connects people who need something delivered with people planning to drive in that direction, said it will cover the costs for pickup and delivery of needed supplies for people affected by floods in Louisiana.
