How to help Louisiana flood victims

The historic and deadly flooding in Louisiana has left thousands with no place to go and in desperate need of help.

There are several different ways you can help from Colorado.

Here’s a look at some of the ways you can help the flooding victims in Louisiana:

The Salvation Army: The organization is helping thousands of residents who were forced to evacuate. You can volunteer or donate money to the Salvation Army’s Gulf Coast fund to help the cause.

The American Red Cross: The Red Cross is providing meals and shelters for residents who need someplace to go. You can contribute financially to the cause by going here and selecting “Louisiana Floods” from the drop-down menu. You can also text the word LAFLOODS to 90999 to make a $10 donation.
