How to Help Louisiana After Hurricane Ida {Drop Offs, Donations, Service Opportunities and More}

Between Katrina 16 years ago to the day of Ida and the Louisiana floods of 2016, Louisiana is no stranger to natural disasters. Perhaps that is pointing out the obvious. What may not be obvious is our state’s resilience, passion for helping others, and love for this state. If you wish to help New Orleans and the surrounding areas at this time (locally or from afar), here is a list of tangible ways you can help the victims of Hurricane Ida.

Do you know of an organization that should be added to this post? We would be honored to help! Please email [email protected].
