Southern District Disaster Response Coordinator, Pastor Ed Brashier, has just returned from storm response in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, and should be onsite in Lake Charles, LA, by Saturday, September 5. Please text or call him at 205-296-3714 if you are interested in volunteering in Lake Charles.
A volunteer center is being established at our LCMS congregation, St. John Lutheran Church, in Lake Charles. Currently very few residents have returned and therefore work requests have not been received. This will change in the next few days.
St. John will NOT be ready for volunteers before September 11, 2020. Anyone wishing to deploy sooner should consider going just across the state line to Beaumont, Texas. The contact person for work in Beaumont is Julie Tucker (210-324-8845).
