NEA members, Louisiana Needs Your Help

Aug 18, 2016

Being part of the NEA family means coming together in good times and in bad. Right now, it is the worst of times for students, families and our members in Louisiana.

The southern part of the state is undergoing historic flooding. At least six people have died and thousands have been forced from their homes. More than 20,000 residents have been rescued over the past few days and more than 10,000 are in shelters, mostly in the Baton Rouge area.

Unfortunately, most of the affected families did not have flood insurance because their homes were not considered to be in high-risk areas that would have required the insurance.

Several of the state’s parishes have been declared disaster areas, and more are likely to be soon.

Debbie Meaux, president of the Louisiana Association of Educators (LAE), has been communicating regularly with members and is asking them to let the association know of their communities’ needs so they can offer as much support as possible.

We are encouraging state affiliates, members and others to use this secure web site to make donations to LAE members and schools who are in need. All donations will be directed through LAE and routed to those most in need.

We appreciate anything you can do and please consider sharing the link to the donation page on your social media platforms. Every bit helps as we support those communities in need.
