Local volunteers will join specially trained Red Cross disaster workers from across the country to help those in need on the East Coast.
Gonzales, Louisiana (PRWEB) November 26, 2012
The remnants of Hurricane Sandy may have passed, but that doesn’t mean the devastation is over. Communities along the East Coast suffered from massive amounts of flooding, power outages, food shortages, and more. Currently, there are a number of Red Cross workers from South Louisiana helping in hurricane relief efforts, providing food, shelter, and emotional support for victims. Carmouche Insurance Agency is encouraging other volunteers to give whatever they can of their time, energy, and donations to those who have faced such tragedies.
Local volunteers will join specially trained Red Cross disaster workers from across the country to help those in need on the East Coast. They are providing a variety of services during the aftermath of the hurricane, such as shelters, food operations, disaster assessment, basic first aid, mental health support, and more. To promote unity, safety, and hope, Carmouche Insurance agents are making it easy for people to learn how they can help in the relief efforts:
- Those who want to help can make a donation to support American Red Cross Disaster Relief by visiting http://www.redcross.org or calling 1-800-RED-CROSS.
- People also can text REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation.
- Some other organizations that are accepting donations and/or organizing volunteers include:
- The Salvation Army
- Save the Children
Hurricane Sandy is said to be one of the biggest disasters in history, making it difficult for any one organization to handle. It will take time for things to return back to normal, but that doesn’t mean hope should be lost. The Red Cross and others desperately need the help and support of local community members.
Carmouche Insurance also wants residents to be aware of the major health and safety hazards that remain after a hurricane has passed. Injuries can happen to anyone dealing with the aftermath of a major storm, even if it is just through volunteering efforts. This is where reliable insurance coverage comes into play. The agents at Carmouche Insurance encourage residents and businesses alike to renew or review their current policies. Whether they are filing a claim on their home insurance, wind/hail insurance, commercial flood insurance, or Louisiana group benefits to keep employees safe, the community can count on this independent insurance agency for support during any covered disaster.
