Still Hard At Work In Louisiana

Field Report by Operation Blessing

LAKE CHARLES, LOUISIANA — Operation Blessing is still hard at work in Louisiana after unprecedented flooding swept through the area in May. Thanks to the compassionate support of friends like you, our staff and volunteers are still giving life-changing aid to victims of the storm. Elridge Dartez, a long-time resident of Lake Charles, needed help desperately. The record-breaking rainfall flooded his house two times within the last year, and he was ready to give up. But thanks to you, Operation Blessing arrived and helped Elridge get back on his feet!

Operation Blessing staff were also blessed to meet with Lieutenant Governor Billy Nungesser. Mr. Nungesser met our staff members as we were clearing out Elridge’s home. “Today I wanted to come by and thank Operation Blessing for the hard work you’re doing here in the community,” he said. Your compassion is changing lives in Louisiana, and we cannot thank you enough! We are still hard at work in Louisiana helping people who are dealing with flood damage.
