As most of you are aware, between August 8th and 14th Baton Rouge, Louisiana was hit with more than 20 inches of rain and the worst floods they've ever seen.  In the town of Denham Springs, the Amite River crested 4.5 feet above the previous flood record.  The result was total devastation.

Greater's very own Chris Severio, a resident of Denham Springs was deeply affected by this tragedy.  He was able to get his Mom to safety while the water was waist deep, then got a call his uncle needed help.  Chris fought the current of chest high water to help his uncle to safety.  Chris and his family members are ok, however, they lost everything.  Their home, their cars, their clothes and everything they hold dear was swept away.

Many of you will get to know Chris Severio for the first time through the film GREATER, where he plays the lead role as Brandon Burlsworth.  The film is based on the story of Brandon's character, work ethic, giving personality and faith in God. Chris Severio embodies the same qualities as Brandon. He is one of the nicest, most caring young men you will ever meet. It was such a pleasure to work with Chris on the set of GREATER and over the past several months during promotion of the film.  Chris has a special place in the hearts of all who worked with him. Greater Productions has set up this account to let Chris know how much he means to us and to help him and his family start the process of getting back on their feet.  They have a long road ahead of them, we would be so grateful for any support you can give to make this road a little smoother.

Here is a link to  Chris with ESPN's Paul Finebaum talking about the flood.

Please feel free to share this with anyone who would like to contribute.  All funds raised will go directly to Chris and his family.

Thank you in advance for your support!
The entire GREATER family
