Hurricane Laura rebuild underway!

By Bartow C Tucker | President

Muck out is complete!!
Muck out is complete!!

Southwest Louisiana is weary--two hurricanes (Laura and Delta) and a tropical storm (Beta) in one storm season. Hurricane Delta quickly revealed the tarps that were installed correctly. For those that blew off the heavy rainfall of Delta compounded the interior damage of Laura.

Few people are aware that by one measure, FEMA Individual Assistance applications, Laura exceeded the damage of two better know hurricanes--Florence in the Carolinas and Michael in Florida. Of course the damage is compounded by the necessary restrictions imposed by COVID-19. The impact on volunteers is the first thought of most but COVID also impacts commercial operations and availability of construction materials.

The good news is that most homes have had their trees removed from roofs and interiors mucked. And rebuilding has begun. 

Without volunteers providing their free labor, our costs even as a nonprofit have increased significantly. We need your financial support more than ever. Please give!

Repair for serious tree damage!
