Taking care of Louisiana evacuees is a community effort

With 1400 evacuees calling Louisville home this week, it has taken a community effort to take care of them.  One evacuee, Chester Schwall, told Fox 41 News on Tuesday, "The people of Louisville, Kentucky have been very, very courteous."

From day one, the Red Cross and its partners have been there for evacuees.  Tuesday, the Louisville Water Company bottled water for evacuees and the Louisville Free Public Library delivered books and backpacks to children.

Several food chains such as Papa Johns, Yum Brands, and Texas Roadhouse, have also helped feed the evacuees.  Louisville Mayor Jerry Abramson says it's been a community effort.

A number of entertainment venues has also opened their doors to evacuees, including the Muhammad Ali Center, Six Flags, and the Louisville Bats.
