Showing the Best of Humanity

Showing the Best of Humanity

I was very blessed to have been able to serve after Hurricane Laura, with remote and local CAC volunteers. Mickey & Alicia and their son (of DeRidder, LA) were awesome. CAC volunteers are people that are that energetic, giving and caring, they always make me want to redouble my efforts. I also had a great time partnering with other organizations to fulfill CAC’s mission of “citizens assing citizens”. Thanks go out to the University of Southwest Louisiana, First Baptist Church of DeRidder, LA, the American Legion Post 59 of Dexte, MO, VFW Post 2659 of Dexter, MO, Sacred Heart Church, St Pius Church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and Labby memorial funeral home of Leesville, LA, you and the two nameless guys who spent all day sweating and carrying tarps to help out their fellow man…you guys rock. There are many more people that I’ve missed, but one special shout out to the people over in Iowa, LA who donated a camper trailer, and to the lineman who helped us upright it. We gave it to a young homeless couple with a 9-day-old baby (named Laura); they and their little baby rode out the storm under their mobile home which was destroyed. As a CAC volunteer, I was happy the facilitate the erecting and transport of the camper. Even on their worst day, the camper donor and their neighbors showed the best of humanity! Thank you CAC Team and donors for enabling me to be a part of the Hurricane Laura recovery deployment and for helping hundreds of people with needed supplies. It was memorable.
