As a Louisiana native, I am sick about the devastation from the recent floods. My heart hurts.
Devastated families in Southern Louisiana are in need of help. The future is uncertain for the thousands evacuated from their homes, many of whom lost everything. This is the second time in a matter of months Louisiana saw more than 24 inches of rain from a single event. Contributions of time, money and services of all sizes are greatly needed and will be for awhile. Please consider helping the victims if you are able.
HOW YOU CAN HELP:
1. Donate to organizations making an impact on the ground
Several emergency relief organizations have been instrumental in search and rescue operations, as well as providing shelter and immediate essentials for those displaced by the flooding. Here are a few organizations doing critical work.
2. Health Care Professionals can find details about volunteering at the New Orleans Medical Relief Group website.
