In the early morning hours of August 27, 2020, Hurricane Laura completely ravaged Southwest Louisiana, leaving countless families and individuals without their homes or small businesses. As the rebuilding begins, the reality of the undertaking in front of us all is very daunting.
We saw our hometown, Lake Charles, devastated. We, along with our wives, knew that we needed to help. Through this fundraiser, funds donated will be used to rebuild our community. As the damages are still being assessed, we are vetting organizations that will be able to impact the most people. We didn’t know at what number to set the goal, but what we do know is that we can come together and far exceed this goal! Please help with whatever you can! Every cent will be going to other members of our community! There is no amount that is too small. Thank you all, and God bless you!
ALL DONATIONS ARE TAX DEDUCTIBLE through the Athletes Doing Good Foundation through a fiscal sponsorship with Players Philanthropy Fund, a Maryland charitable trust recognized by IRS as a tax-exempt public charity under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code (Federal Tax ID: 27-6601178). Contributions to BFF are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
Our families thank you for your support!
