The recent flooding in Louisiana is one of the worst disasters in recent memory. For the businesses and residents in those areas it has been a catastrophe. This tragedy especially hits home because EATEL, one of our Mapcom family clients, has been hit hard. We are helping by sending supplies and we urge you all to help in any way that you can. With the recent flooding in Louisiana, many people are left without the basic supplies they need to survive.
With over 50 of their employees needing certain basic supplies, please consider sending cleaning supplies and personal hygiene items. These are the most difficult things for them to find at this time. Ship any donations directly to Janet Britton, EATEL, 913 South Burnside Avenue, Gonzales, LA 70737. Please contact Janet for a list of specific items they need, if you would like suggestions.
EATEL has also set up an Employee Assistance Fund, where donations can be made. Employees struck with unexpected expenses from unforeseen circumstances are able to apply for a grant to help in their time of need. Anything you can donate is much appreciated!
Thank you to our friends and families in the industry for helping care for our clients in Louisiana. We continue to send extra prayers and support your way.
