A quote from our partner in Louisiana about receiving the supplies you all donated in response to Hurricane Laura.

“It’s greatly appreciated – what was put down here. Because you have to realize, we had no way of obtaining those things… Here I am, sitting in a room right now, I’m looking at dog food, baby diapers, bathroom essentials, canned goods, water – whatever you could think of that you’d need; we haven’t been short of anything - thanks to people like you.

You have to understand that when you don’t have anything – it’s people like you that make it possible for us to be here and work. Without supplies, without food, without water, without flashlights, without batteries, oh, I could go on and on! Without all of those things – with no electricity, we couldn’t function here. We’d have to just close the gates.”

Thank you for helping the people of Louisiana and Texas with 5 tractor trailers filled with supplies. #lynchburgva #gleaningfortheworld

Disaster Preparedness Tip: June 30: You never know where or when a disaster or emergency may strike. Educating yourself and your family members of emergency procedures, and practicing drills whenever possible, are good ways to stay prepared for any event that may occur.

Following emergency preparation guidelines, stocking up your emergency kit, knowing your surroundings, and listening to news and weather updates are important ways to stay prepared.

Thank you for taking the time to check out our daily Disaster Preparation Tips this month. We hope you have enjoyed reading each day's tip and have begun to practice them in your home.

June is Disaster Preparedness Month: Today's Tip: Ensuring that you keep a phone with you during an emergency can be a vital step in keeping your family and those around you safe. Calls, texts, social media posts, and other features of smartphones allow people to reach each other in ways we had never thought possible 25 years ago.

Use your phone to relay information to authorities, rescue and/or support teams, and to locate loved ones after a disaster occurs. #disasterpreparedness #gleaningfortheworld
