Louisiana Flood Relief
ABOUT OUR LOUISIANA FLOOD RELIEF PROJECT
Catastrophic flooding hit Southern Louisiana in August of this year, displacing thousands of residents. Our disaster relief project this year will focus on helping the people of Louisiana recover in the wake of these historic floods.
We have plenty of work to do and we need your help to get it all done. Complete our Volunteer Signup Form to send a team of volunteers, we expect to have our volunteer facility ready to receive volunteers beginning Thanksgiving break and will continue through at least April 2017.
VOLUNTEER ACCOMODATIONS AND MEALS
CC International adheres to the standards set by the American Red Cross for housing and feeding volunteers. We Provide:
Each day volunteers will be served breakfast and make their own brown bag lunch before departing to their project site. Dinner will be served each evening. Vegetarian options are available for each meal, refrigerator space is available to store personal food for those with special dietary needs. Bunk units have recently been updated. Each volunteer will need to furnish their own sleeping bag, linens, blankets, and towels.
CC International takes a holistic approach to community recovery. In addition to homes directly impacted by the weather, local community organizations, such as food banks and after school programs, struggle to meet the increased needs of their clients and constituents. Many of these organizations and their staff members have suffered direct impact from the flood. CC International volunteers will work to help these organizations serve their constituents and get back on their feet.

The project service fee covers the cost of lodging, breakfast, lunch, and dinner, project coordination, tools, safety equipment, project supplies, and insurance. $38.00 per person per day. (Transportation is not included)
