Dear Teach For America Family,
The days of August 12-15 saw record-breaking floods plague the South Louisiana community, destroying homes and displacing thousands of people. All of our South Louisiana corps members are accounted for and safe, and we are working on contacting the 250 alumni in our area, however the journey to rebuild will be a challenge that will hopefully bring our community closer together. Some of our corps members, alumni, and staff members have been affected - evacuating and even losing homes completely. Additionally, many of our students' families and staff at partner schools have also lost homes and belongings, leaving many unsure of where to go from here.
We feel a responsibility to support our community as it works to grow stronger in the wake of recent events. This fund will be distributed to corps members, alumni, and partner schools to rebuild homes, classrooms, and communities. Please consider supporting our region as we assess the needs of our communities and support each other as we rebuild stronger than before. Even a small amount is appreciated.
The TFA-South Louisiana Team
