How can you give back to hurricane victims

Local News

Many people are wondering what is the best way to help those affected by Hurricanes Irma and Harvey. 

One local organization is doing what it can to make donating easier. The Baton Rouge Emergency Aid Coalition is currently accepting donations to bring to hurricane victims. 

“We felt that. When you give to a bigger organization, your funds don’t go directly to those who need, and so that was our mission, is to take funds and give it directly back to those who need, whether it be in the form of gift cards or backpacks or tents if they don’t have housing. We’ve done sleeping bags. We’ve done mattresses for people in Baton Rouge,” said Ashley Saucier of BREAC.
