LAKE CHARLES, La. – Operation Blessing is providing hope for victims of Hurricane Delta. The Category 2 storm ripped through Louisiana on October 9th with devastating force. Because of Delta’s high winds and torrential rain, many victims were deeply affected by the storm. Hurricane Delta is the third major storm to hit the Gulf region of the United States, in one of the most active hurricane seasons in recorded history.
Trudy Faulk is one victim who was left without hope, her possessions and home largely damaged or destroyed. After Hurricane Laura and Hurricane Delta, Trudy’s home had sustained severe water and mold damage. But because Trudy’s family is older, and not in the best of health, she was left alone to pick up the pieces of her life. This would be a herculean task for one person to do alone. “I probably would have ended up having to gut the house and move stuff by myself,” Trudy told OB staff.
But you provided hope for Trudy and other victims of hurricane delta when they needed it most. Thanks to your generosity, OB staff arrived ready to work. Operation Blessing helped Trudy remove debris, rip out moldy drywall, and sift through her precious belongings. “It’s awesome. It’s really, really awesome to know that somebody cares,” Trudy said thankfully.
None of this would be possible without your generosity and support. Because of you, Operation Blessing is able to respond in times of crisis. To learn more about how you can get involved, please click here. Thank you and God Bless.
