Southern Rentals and Real Estate Flood Relief FundraiserAugust 31, 2016
Southern Rentals and Real Estate has teamed with the American Red Cross to help contribute to the relief efforts for the Louisiana flood victims. To help raise money, Southern will donate $5 for each vacation reservation made from September 1st through the 15th, 2016. Southern is committed to helping the people of Louisiana rebuild in the wake of this disaster.
Over 7.1 trillion gallons of water fell on the coast of Louisiana over a short 10 day period in early August of 2016. As the lakes and river overflowed with water, Baton Rouge, Lafayette, and surrounding areas become flooded from the torrential downpour, which dropped more water on the area than Hurricane Katrina. With little warning, the flooding forced people from their homes as they had no choice but to leave in search of higher ground. An estimated 146,000 homes and countless businesses were damaged by this tragedy. Some areas were so badly flooded they may never recover.
Please help the relief efforts in Louisiana any way that you can as these people and communities work to rebuild their lives. You can donate directly to the Red Cross, contribute via the Southern Rentals and Real Estate Crowdrise page, or donate when you call Southern to make your reservation. In addition, for each vacation reservation made from September 1st through the 15th, 2016, Southern will donate $5 to the American Red Cross. Please help us reach our goal as we extend our support and resources to the victims of this tragedy in Louisiana.
