Jean Lafitte, LA ~ Hurricane Ida Relief ~ PLEASE SHARE- We desperately need your help!

State Representative Tim Kerner, Sr and Jean Lafitte Mayor Tim Kerner, Jr have asked for DRT to come into Jean Lafitte.

We are set up at the Civic Center in Jean Lafitte, LA. The building is being powered by generator and the water is on.  Please DO NOT arrive after dark.  Also, please make sure EVERY person in your group registers separately so we have an accurate count for planning purposes.

 

You will need to bring your own air mattress--TWIN SIZE ONLY--with you this time.

***Volunteers and supplies are DESPERATELY Needed.

**Our Hurricane Ida relief effort will be in addition to our work in Waverly and McEwen, TN.  There are still so many families in need of help in Tennessee as well.

With all of these disasters and the amount of rebuilding we do, it is very costly.  Your donations and volunteering are what help families get back into their homes.

**Donations can be made online through this website or by mail to:
