Hurricane Laura devastated southwest Louisiana, leaving families without power, food, water, and shelter. In three weeks, EKAM Shreveport raised $4,000 through the GoFundMe platform. All monetary donations were given to the Louisiana Hospitality Foundation to assist hospitality workers impacted by the storm and provide grants for individuals to rebuild their homes.
Testimonial from an individual impacted by Hurricane Laura:
“My family and I cannot thank the Louisiana Hospitality Foundation enough for assisting us in putting our home back together in the wake of Hurricane’s Laura and Delta. The storms left our home unlivable and while we are all safe and are learning how to live the camping lifestyle, the old saying holds true…there’s no place like home, and our family thanks LHF for helping to get us in our home faster with this generous grant!"
