Growing up in Louisiana, hurricane’s became quite a bit of the norm, but as much as we learned how to manage them, sometimes the storms are just too tough. Hurricane Ida brought severe damage to the Louisiana’s coastline displacing thousands of people and leaving others without electricity for weeks. Being a LA native I want to help support any reliefs efforts I can. I know for me it’s sometimes tough to know exactly where to donate, so I did the research for y’all and and found reputable places to send your help. Nola.com to be the most helpful as far as critical needs. Weather.com also broke down several ways you can volunteer locally or donate.
