HOUSTONTexas (KIAH) Another Houston business is pitching in to help Louisianians recover from this weekend’s deadly hurricane.  Space Cowboy says it’s hosting a Hurricane Ida Relief Drive on Thursday, September 2nd, 2021 from 12 p.m. until 2 a.m. at the Heights House Hotel on 100 W. Cavalcade St. in Houston, TX.  You can drop off relief supplies such as non-perishable food items, bottled water, toiletries, feminine hygiene products, cleaning supplies, socks, and underwear.  Chef Lyle Bento, whose mother is from Louisiana, will also be there to provide free red beans and rice to anyone who donates supplies. 

I have deep roots in Louisiana. My mom’s family has been there for generations. My grandfather was a minister and ran multiple churches all over southern Louisiana, including New Orleans, so it holds a big place in my heart. We’ve all been through this before, so we know how it goes. Whatever we can do to help these people out, we’re going to do it.”
