The Bayou Recovery Project is a 501(c)3 organization that serves the community of Bayou La Batre, Alabama. After 2005, the Bayou Recovery Project was created to help repair destroyed property and lives in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. Just as things were beginning to heal, on April 20, 2010, the Deepwater Horizon oil platform exploded into flames. This event has resulted in more than 184 million gallons of oil gushing into the Gulf of Mexico. The spill continues to have a severe and lasting impact on the economy of our community and the lives of our friends, neighbors, and coworkers, an impact that is likely to be more detrimental than Katrina.
Bayou Recovery Project is funded by grants and private donations. All proceeds go to assisting families and individuals with meeting their daily food needs and restoring their property to ensure a secure living environment. Donate to Bayou Recovery Project, and help keep the families in Bayou La Batre safe and healthy.
