So many of our countrymen and women have been affected by Hurricane Ida. The storm continues on its way north as I’m writing this note. If you would like to help those who sorely need it, here are some of the links provided by Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices today. Thank you for all you do!
To donate to those recovering from Hurricane Ida through the Red Cross online, follow this link. The Red Cross provides shelters, meals and water, emergency supplies and health services, including mental health.
The organization uses donations to provide food, drinks, shelter, emotional and spiritual support and other emergency services to those affected by the hurricane as well as first responders. When donating through the Salvation Army, 100% of the proceeds go toward the disaster relief of your choice, and no fees are taken. To donate through the Salvation Army, follow this link. To donate via phone, call 1-800-SAL-ARMY (1-800-725-2769).
Feed the Second Line
Feed the Second Line, an organization that provides support to those in New Orleans’ creative community in an effort to preserve the city’s signature culture, announced on social media that all donations made in September and October will go to those recovering from Hurricane Ida. To donate to Feed the Second Line, visit the website here.
As humans throughout the state hurried to evacuate, the Louisiana SPCA stayed behind to make sure animals were safe as well. Between Friday and Saturday, the organization loaded up 160 shelter animals before traveling to Houston and Atlanta where they could safely ride out the storm and later be adopted out from various shelters. You can help the SPCA keep these animals safe by providing a donation here.
