Hurricane Ida has left many in southeast Louisiana without basic needs.
And while they work to rebuild and get back on their feet after the storm, KATC is providing a way for those who can help to do so.
KATC along with the United Way of Acadiana, Second Harvest Food Bank and Catholic Charities of Acadiana will host a Food & Supply Drive to benefit those impacted by the storm.
“It is super important to connect to the generosity of the community with concrete ways for them to help,” Catholic Charities spokesman Ben Broussard said. “Disaster response organizations like ours need specific things to help restore people’s lives after a disaster. This is an easy way for folks to be a part of a true community response.”
