SLFDA is pleased to announce a new partnership with Rev. Jesse Jackson and Rainbow PUSH Coalition. Rev. Jackson reached out to SLFDA's Committee Chairman, Dr. Mark Ellis, for ways he can help Louisiana recover from the flood disaster. Rev. Jackson took time to visit shelters to figure out the needs of flood victims. After intense observation, Rev. Jackson and Rainbow PUSH Coalition quickly mobilized a team to gather tangible supplies and have them shipped from Chicago to our Saintsville Relief Center.
On August 25th, 2016 we gave away close to 120 gift cards to flood victims. Our Committee Chair, Dr. Mark Ellis, and our Relief Center Project Manager, Pastor Kenneth McKnight, had a prayer and information session with every victim that received a card. The event ran smoothly and the people left satisfied.
