Stay Strong Louisiana and Mississippi

by | Aug 31, 2021 | Louisiana

Our thoughts are with our friends, family, coworkers, partners, and customers affected by Hurricane Ida.

Our thanks go to all the frontline responders, rescue workers, and volunteers risking their safety and lives to assist those in need.

And to the numerous teams of workers from multiple states racing to restore power, we would like to extend our deepest gratitude.

How to Help

Reporters share stories describing “catastrophic damage” and “devastation” to areas hardest hit by the hurricane and subsequent flooding in Louisiana, Mississippi, and surrounding regions. Many buildings, bridges, and roadways were simply no match for the powerful storm.

But the people of the Gulf Coast are survivors. They are strong and resilient, with a powerful dedication to rebuild. We believe in the people of Louisiana and Mississippi. We know they will successfully repair, restore, and reestablish their proud communities for a better tomorrow. But for today, they can use our help.
