Disaster Relief and Recovery Efforts

 

United Way of Acadiana is here for neighbors before, during, and after a disaster.

There are several ways you can help:
  • Contribute to our relief fund here. Your donation will help cover the needs of a neighbor during the Hurricane Laura Disaster. As we are still assessing damages, the fund will be used in the United Way of Acadiana service area first and then to assist our sister agency based in Lake Charles (United Way of Southwest Louisiana) with any remaining funds. Donors who give to our relief fund will receive a code for free delivery on your next Waitr order. You may also donate directly to our friends in Lake Charles here. 

  • Volunteers are being deployed with disaster assistance on an as needed basis. If you are available and want to help, please register as a volunteer here, and we will keep you posted on all disaster relief opportunities as they arise.

  • United Way of Acadiana has partnered with hampr, a local laundry service app, to fill the laundry needs of those displaced by Hurricane Laura. Click here for more information.
