Love Thy Neighbor: Resources for Hurricane Laura Outreach


Love Thy Neighbor: Resources for Hurricane Laura Outreach
 
Our prayers are with our neighbors as the sun rises on the devastation left by Hurricane Laura. As we know on the Gulf Coast, this could have just as easily been us. We are starting to see local efforts, food drives and fundraisers to help with recovery, and we want to help spread the word.
 
Please find links to resources and community outreach programs below. 
 
If you know of any programs and businesses in our area that are here to help, please email dcurtis@eschamber.com.
