On Sunday, August 29, 2021, Hurricane Ida swept through Louisiana as a Category 4 storm, wreaking havoc on communities. Individuals throughout the council territories of Girls on the Run: Bayou Region, New Orleans, and South Louisiana are responding to the devastating aftermath. Many will remain evacuated or displaced for weeks. Many schools remain closed while damage is assessed and electricity returns.
There are incredible organizations and individuals at work to provide immediate relief to Louisianians. Our goal is to provide relief to families with varying needs across all three council territories as they navigate the upcoming weeks. The relief will be distributed in the form of Walmart gift cards.
Please consider a donation of any amount to support our GOTR families, past and present volunteers, and school champions.
