First responders are not immune to the tragedies they so often help others with. For many, they leave their homes before these events to be ready to help others in need only to return home, and find they are victims, too.
Acadian has more than 100 medics and employees whose homes were severely damaged by the recent flooding in Louisiana. Our team of more than 4,000-strong are stepping up to help those employees with their immediate needs.
We are overwhelmed with the outpouring of support and offers for assistance by the general public. To facilitate donations, we have set up an Employee Assistance Fund that will be administered through the Community Foundation of Acadiana. These funds will be distributed to our employees throughout Louisiana who have been affected.
If you'd like to help those who so often come to your aid, please consider a donation to this fund.
