On August 26, 2020, one of the most powerful storms in U.S. history touched down in Lake Charles. After 140 miles per hour winds, rain, and heavy flooding, our city turned into an aerial wasteland overnight. Those that were able to return from mandatory evacuation now struggle to navigate miles of uprooted trees, twisted metal, and torn roofing.
Our hearts break as we learn that many of our homes and businesses were completely lost, and disastrous damage was inflicted on our new sanctuary. Many of our families and elders are left with nowhere to go. In response, we are asking for your assistance. With your help, we can provide toiletries, non-perishable food items, blankets, cleaning supplies, and necessary housing equipment. We mourn with those who have lost, but we know that with your support, we will rise again. Thank you in advance for your donation. We are deeply grateful.
