Please join the Raycom Media family of stations as we support the American Red Cross of Louisiana. Our local chapters are working around the clock to deliver hope and help for people impacted by this severe flooding event.

As of Saturday, Aug. 13, more than 5,000 people have been forced from their homes and estimated recovery costs have reached more than $10 million.

These numbers haven't been seen in Louisiana since Hurricane Katrina. We know the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors helps fuel the Red Cross mission. Will you join us in answering the call?
