PRESS RELEASE: As Rebuilding Begins, Parish Winds Down Donation Collection

Post Date:08/23/2016 12:09 PM

Mathews, LA – With the flooding relief effort now shifting to rebuilding mode, the efforts to aid people impacted by the recent severe weather now shifts to an effort requiring more monetary means. Lafourche Parish individuals, businesses, organizations and schools have put forward a tremendous effort in the last week and have contributed an incredible amount of supplies to help our neighbors in need. Donation deliveries were made to Ascension, Livingston and Lafayette parishes. To that effort, we thank all who gave whatever they could to help. 


As efforts now shifting to rebuilding, Lafourche Parish Government will no longer be collecting donations.  Should you desire to still donate items, please check with local non-profits or charitable organizations who may be continuing in that effort. Lafourche Parish is always happy to assist our neighbors in times of trouble and will do so in the future when called upon.  The past week has been a great testament to the spirit and character of the people of South Louisiana who are always ready to lend a helping hand.
