Flood Relief for the Gulf Coast
Thousands are still displaced following the August flooding across the Baton Rouge area. There are a few ways you can help…
Come to the "All For Louisiana" Benefit Concert Sunday, August 18, at 7:00 pm, at Bearden United Methodist Church. Please come out and hear some great music and bring your wallets and purses as we will be taking donations to be sent directly to those in need in LA. Performing will be Noelle Harb, soprano; Brandon Coffer, pianist; Keaton Hall, baritone; Brandon Loveday, bass baritone.
Can’t attend the benefit? How about one of these options?
The Rev. Bo Lewis Has Just Returned From Louisiana where he had gone to lend a hand in flood clean-up efforts. According to Bo, most homes in flooded area took on 3-5 feet of water. Each front lawn is littered with the contents stripped from the homes. Clean up will take months and millions.
Bo’s cousin, who is leading flood relief efforts at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Baton Rouge, shares that one of best ways for folks to help locally is to send donations to St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, Attn: Becky Williams, 8833 Goodwood Blvd., Baton Rouge, LA 70806. If you would like information or if you have questions, please contact Jan Lewis at 865-712-0674 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
