What We Did
When the devastating flood waters descended on Louisiana in August of 2016, it was clear that there would be a lot of people who needed help.
Americans did what Americans do: they banded together, gave food, gutted houses, and provided medicine for those who needed it. But with all the support for immediate needs, there was a secondary need that no one was talking about: the fast approaching school year.
How We Did It
Providing school supplies, backpacks and all, was a simple way for our organization to be there for kids in need. So we activated our network to raise money and donations of supplies to be there for the students and teachers in need.
After everything was said and done, we delivered over $1.3 million in support to flood victims.
Unfortunately, this isn’t the last time our community will need help responding to a natural disaster. But whenever that day comes, Team Comeback will be ready.
