"Reaching out to make a difference"
On 4/13/18, our Executive Director addressed the Restore Louisiana Task Force to advocate for 2016 flood survivors awaiting Restore Louisiana funding to complete repairs to their home.
COMMUNITY REBUILDING PROJECT
On 8/11/18, Vital Resource Solutions hosted our 1st Community Rebuilding Project at the home of a floor survivor in Baton Rouge, LA. Team Depot awarded Vital a grant to cover flooring and cabinetry!!! Our client was so elated to finally have flooring, both carpet and laminate, and kitchen cabinets installed in the home. Since this was the 2-year anniversary of the flood, this was a great way to commemorate this historical event as well as the tenacity of the survivors.
Special thanks to CityYear for supporting us with volunteers, and our other sponsors: Starbucks, Raising Canes, and Walmart. We truly appreciate the support of the community as we help residents recover from the 2016 flood.
Our Executive Director reaches out to the community at WAFB Studios on 6/29/18 to promote our Flood Survivor Advocacy & Disaster Preparedness Day held on 7/7/18.
Our 1st Annual Fundraiser luncheon, held November 2017, was truly an event to remember. We reflected on milestones, heard testimonials, and acknowledged supporters (Pastor Wallace of Oasis Christian Church & UMCOR). Special thank you to Rowdy Gaudet of the Mayor's Office and Rep. C. Denise Marcelle for serving as honorary speaakers.
