Hurricane Ida and How to Help
Hurricane Ida slammed into Louisiana on August 29th, 2021, which is the 16th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. The hurricane is one of the strongest hurricanes to have hit the US. Ida left devastating impacts on Louisiana and the Gulf Coast area from debris, flooding, power outages and more. We have compiled a list of organizations and ways to help those who were affected by Hurricane Ida.
Cajun Navy Relief
The Cajun Navy Relief consists of volunteers who focus on disaster relief and food donations. The Cajun Navy Relief has been doing a search and rescue mission during Hurricane Ida and is rescuing people from their attics in LaPlace, Louisiana which flooded during the storm.
