ΖΦΒ-ΡΕ Baton Rouge Flood Donations
$20,975 of $10k goal
We hope and pray to raise $10k and will donate $500 to each family or student to help with the financial burden that they will face while trying to recover from the flood. We hope to get these funds to the victims immediately so they can quickly start their journey to recovery. Funds will be given in the form of twenty Visa gift cards. One card for each family/student. They will also receive supplies we've collected through our supply drive.
This cause is special to the ladies of Rho Epsilon because Baton Rouge is our home and many of our friends and community members have become victims of this flood. We want to go beyond our words of encouragement and make a bigger impact. We too are students and are members of families and are sharing in their struggle.
We will be more than thankful for any amount you can donate or even if you can get the word out and spread the news of our action to raise money for the victims.
Thank you and God bless.
I will be the administrator for withdrawing funds from the GoFundMe account. A designated bank account has been set up strictly for these donations. The donations will be distributed to those in need via a Visa Master card in the amount of $500. We have an application that will require verifiable information from the applicant to ensure that we are helping those who have truly been affected. We have begun to send the applications to those who have contacted us indicating that they are in need of assistance. Reviewing of the applications will begin on Monday August 29, 2016. Once all applications have been reviewed and verified those who qualify for funds will receive additional information to receive their gift card. Thanks to all of you, we have enough funds to assist 41 families, exceeding our initial goal of assisting 20 families. If you or anyone you know has been affected by the recent flood and would like to be considered for assistance please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
