More than 60,000 homes have been impacted and at least 13 people have lost their lives as a result of the severe flooding in both Louisiana and Mississippi. As a result, the Federal Government has declared a major disaster, reportedly the worst to hit the U.S. since Superstorm Sandy.
As business continuity and disaster recovery professionals, we know these communities need help to recover and rebuild. The DRI Foundation is committed to supporting these communities by connecting willing donors to local community resilience efforts. How can you help?
Donate: Every penny donated to our Donations after Disasters Fund goes directly to recovery and resilience efforts. There is strength and solidarity in numbers. By combining our donations, we can make a meaningful and sustainable impact on these communities.
Identify local charities: Local charities are the lifeblood of real community resilience. If you are familiar with local organizations aiding the recovery of affected areas, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will take all submissions into consideration and select local recipients from the list of submissions.
