The dioceses of Louisiana and Western Louisiana are helping to co-ordinate recovery-operations, and were urging people to donate money rather than second-hand goods to the relief effort.
Karen Mackey from the diocese of Louisiana said: “The churches in our diocese are doing a phenomenal job in responding to the flood. We in Louisiana have become no stranger to natural disasters. One of our greatest strengths is knowing where our talents and assets lie, and knowing how to use them to respond when and where needed. Our churches across the diocese are partnering with one another, pooling resources to respond where God calls them to serve, and seeking out the most vulnerable to share God’s love.”
