On August 27, Hurricane Laura made landfall as a Category 4 hurricane on the Louisiana coast, causing destruction across Lake Charles and surrounding areas. In response, Amazon is partnering with the state of Louisiana and Louisiana Economic Development’s emergency management team to donate and deliver more than 150,000 bottles of water as a first step in meeting residents’ immediate needs. Amazon is also supporting World Hope International through the Louisiana Governor’s Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness by donating hundreds of thousands of requested items. Some of these items include generators, chainsaws, solar light chargers, cleaning supplies, cases of water and diapers, and baby formula to help local families get back on their feet.
Our thoughts are with those affected by Hurricane Laura. You can support the relief efforts by donating cash to the American Red Cross, Save the Children, or Feeding America. You can also support by sending essentials from the SBP, Save the Children, or Feeding America Charity Lists. Or just ask, “Alexa, make a donation to Hurricane Laura relief at the American Red Cross."
