August 2016 Louisiana Floods

In August 2016, intense flooding in Louisiana wreaked havoc on more than 100,000 families in south Louisiana. Many residents lost their homes, cars and possessions, with tens of thousands of residents still facing log-term recovery. Louisiana United Ways are coordinating efforts to help meet the unmet needs of families and their communities, now and in the future. 

The Louisiana Association of United Ways invites everyone to lend a helping hand to restore lives.  This fund will provide critical resources to regional United Ways who are coordinating efforts to help flood victims in local communities impacted by the historical flood.

If you are interesting in giving to the Louisiana United Way Flood Fund please text HELPLA to 313131 or click here.
