How Can You Help Victims Of Hurricane Sandy? Here’s Some Info
I was watching the news earlier. It looks like a lot of people will be suffering in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy for a while. The images were apocalyptic. Millions of people are still without power. Some may not get it back for a week and a half. Winter weather is expected to move into areas affected by the storm. Here in Acadiana, we’ve been through this sort of thing before, and we’re known for pitching in. Many of the people affected by this “Superstorm” have no point of reference. Lives are still at risk. If you want to help, here’s some information that will make it easier.
