LEAN has again re-started Hands Of Hope, our disaster response effort, for the flooding that has affected many thousands of Louisianians. LEAN started Hands Of Hope in response to Hurricanes Katrina and Rita and re-initiated relief efforts during Hurricanes Gustav and Ike. LEAN’s response to date to the unprecedented flooding has been to coordinate the delivery of donated relief goods to the appropriate distribution points, the ordering and staging of protective gear and equipment for those working in flooded structures, and the coordination of volunteer gutting crews with Together Baton Rouge. LEAN staff is also volunteering time to help gut houses for those in need. Your donations will help us provide equipment to those recovering from the flooding. Donate here to help!
LEAN has protective gear, such as n-95 particulate masks and nitrile gloves, available for volunteers and homeowners in need of such supplies. We may be able to source additional items. If you are in need of protective gear please contact us at: (225) 588-5059 or contact us here
If you are interested in volunteering to clean out flooded homes of those in need please contact us here.
