Meet the Need: Help the Children in Louisiana
Organized by: ImageMakers Media
In August, a major storm saturated southern Louisiana, causing catastrophic flooding which claimed over 13 lives and damaged more than 60,000 homes. It poured nearly 7 trillion gallons of water, enough water to fill more than 6 million Olympic-size pools!
Hundreds of thousands of people have now found themselves in devastation. We’ve asked community leaders in Louisiana about their greatest need. Their answer? Help the children. Almost a quarter million children have been affected by this natural disaster, with a significant proportion of them not being able to return to school because many schools have been flooded and many teachers’ homes have been destroyed. Parents are receiving food and housing assistance, but they are not able to provide the resources needed for their kids to have a successful school year as they are trying to slowly rebuild their lives. The children need our help.
We have committed to “Meet the Need” and provide uniforms and school supplies for the children so that they can get back to school and have a successful school year despite the devastation they’ve suffered. Would you consider partnering with us to meet the need?
