Volunteer lodging has been secured and we are scaling up our efforts to offer cleanup and restoration assistance to more homes per day.
Dear NECHAMA Family,
We are once again called upon to support those in need after a major event. Many of you have already donated or signed up to volunteer. Thank you.
The flooding in Louisiana has been called the worst disaster in the United States since Hurricane Sandy. Tens of thousands of homes were inundated with flood water during the week of Tisha B'Av. Most of the homes are single story ranches leaving many to turn to shelters, family or friends for places to stay because their homes are no longer habitable. As I write this, thousands of people are still reliant on and staying in shelters, which confirms the severity of this disaster.
