Louisiana Flood Recovery Info and Links

I collected some some links below, but a hmarketing group put together a more comprehensive list.

Whether you need help or want to donate or volunteer, this is the place to go.



I’m compiling an ongoing list of links that relate to the most recent Louisiana (and Mississippi) flooding in August 2016. Continue to check this or share it on social media as I will update it.

As always, do your own research on charities to determine which ones are legitimate. I’d also like to add that you should choose to donate where her heart lies. Some people love helping the animals. Others like donating to the rebuilding process and some prefer to support the immediate recovery efforts. Still others would prefer to pack up their stuff and head down for a hands-on experience. We all play a part, and you don’t have to feel guilty for not doing it all! Together, we’ll get it done.

Please feel free to send links to me via the contact information on my “about me” page or post in the comments section below. If it’s not legit or spam, I will delete it, so keep it clean.

I haven’t categorized them because many do several things, but I have noted what they do. See their websites for more details.

      • I was thinking of how you were spiritually led to move out of there. I can imagine that this diaster brings even more poignancy but also affirmation to your move. I’m glad you got the home you wanted.
