Hurricane Laura Recovery

On August 26th, Hurricane Laura made landfall as a category four hurricane in Southwest Louisiana. The community has been devastated. Our clients, staff, and properties are not immune to this impact. We need your help to recover. While a monetary donation is the most effective way to give, we are also looking for critically-needed supplies listed below. If you choose to donate, please put "Hurricane Laura Relief" in the memo section of your donation.

All in-kind donations can be shipped to our Corporate office: 3949 North Blvd, Baton Rouge, Louisiana 70806. To make donating simple, you can purchase from our Amazon Wish List for the hurricane relief supplies needed most at this time. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we will only be accepting PREAPPROVED drop off donations. To arrange a drop off date, please email development@voagbr.org.
