LAKE CHARLES, La. – Volunteering with Operation Blessing is a great way to give back to the community after disasters like Hurricane Laura. Hurricane Laura devastated Lake Charles, leaving massive trees downed and many homes severely damaged. Because of the widespread destruction caused by the storm, OB is in dire need of volunteers. Ivonne Adame is one individual who gave up her time to volunteer with Operation Blessing. “There’s such a big need here,” Adame said. “And mostly for volunteers. These things can’t get done without hands.”
Volunteers like Adame are a great help to Operation Blessing staff during cleanup. Like Adame said, things cannot get done without the hands of generous volunteers. When you volunteer with Operation Blessing, you will receive all the tools, supplies, and first class volunteer coordination that you need to make the most of your time on the ground. And knowing that you are helping people at their most vulnerable is a great gift. “It’s been amazing to get the opportunity to come out here and get to help them!” Adame exclaimed joyfully.
