Exactly one month ago we watched Hurricane Ida rip through our communities and began to assess the damage and pick up the pieces left behind. While life has slowly begun to return to “normal” for some of us, we know that too many schools are still closed, too many homes are without power, and loved ones and neighbors continue to struggle with loss and figuring out what’s next.
At the same time, we’ve seen inspiring examples of neighbors supporting one another by sharing generators, helping with clean-up efforts, and donating hot meals and essential hygiene products. Our community and state demonstrate again and again that we are united, strong, and capable of standing with one anther. We honor those who are making a difference and we, at Stand Louisiana, also want to do our part.
If you are experiencing a need of any kind, we want to do what we can to connect you with trusted resources and support. While we can’t provide solutions to every challenge, we want you to know that we stand with you because now, more than ever, we need to take care of one another.
If you have an immediate need, whether it be access to hot meals, health services, roof repair, or debris clean up, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and share with us where we can be helpful. While we are not a direct service organization, we can help you connect with many of the organizations operating on the ground.
We’re in this together so, regardless of what you’re experiencing, know that you are never alone.
