GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

A Gulfport church is working to help Gulf Coast residents impacted by Hurricane Isaac get their lives back in order.

Progressive Baptist Church isn't simply focusing on helping their own, they are also assisting the residents of St. John the Baptist Parish in Louisiana.

They packed truckloads of cleaning supplies and a few other items that will help with recovery Saturday.

The church members said it's an honor to be of assistance to those in need.

"They have mold in their homes. They have children and disabled people in these homes, so they need cleaning supplies. They don't have means of getting it and then they don't have transportation. They can't go to Covington. They can't go to New Orleans, where the Red Cross and Salvation Army are. So we're going to do it," said Brenda Wilson Brown with Progressive Baptist Church.

Last weekend the church collected and delivered clothing to Louisiana.

Next Thursday, Progressive Baptist Church will hold another drive to collect more supplies to take to Louisiana.

If you would like to help the residents of St. John the Baptist Parish in Louisiana you can drop off cleaning supplies at Progressive Missionary Baptist Church Wednesday and Thursday between 5pm and 8pm. If you are unable to, but would like to donate, you can call the church at 228-864-5674.
