LAFAYETTE, La. (KLFY) – Hurricane relief efforts continue as Second Harvest provides a variety of supplies and essentials across Southwest Louisiana and Texas.
Along with gathering and distributing supplies to those in need, Second Harvest is also accepting monetary donations to fund the continued distributions.
“I think it’s important to be involved.a lot of people don’t have a lot of places to turn to,” said Todd Lambert from Summit Financial Wealth Advisors.
Maximizing donations and minimizing the workload is what the Summit Financial Wealth Advisors of Lafayette plan to do.
They offered to match dollar for dollar donations made to Second Harvest.
“We felt that it was important to be involved in this as there is so many in need on a daily basis and organization like Second Harvest, which does so much already,” Lambert said.With offering up to $50,000 in the match, Summit Financial hopes to ensure the affected communities can count on Acadiana to deliver these products.
Truck load by truck load.“There’s many from Texas that are displaced here in Acadiana and we wanted to be able to help whatever way we could,” Lambert added.
“Just seeing how the community comes together and help out when our brothers and sisters are in need has been truly inspiring. We’re able to amplify our efforts and provide twice as much relief,” said Natasha Curly from Second Harvest Food Bank.
Donations can be dropped off at the Lafayette and Elmwood warehouses or online at no-hunger.org/harvey
