ROTARY DISTRICT 6840 AND ROTARY CLUB OF OCEAN SPRINGS HELP LIBRARY WORKERS WITH FLOOD RECOVERY

18 Aug 2017 8:00 AM | Anne Hudson (Administrator)

On June 23, Rotary District 6840 Assistant Governor and Head of the Gunter Library at the Gulf Coast Research Laboratory, Joyce M. Shaw, presented $400 Home Depot gift cards to ten employees of the Livingston Parish Libraries who were affected by the August 2016 flooding in the Baton Rouge area. The workers are in the process of repairing their flood impacted homes. This recovery project directly helps 21 people. The August flooding in and around Baton Rough is considered the worst natural disaster to impact the United States in 2016. This is the second disaster recovery effort involving the Livingston Parish Library led by Shaw and the Rotary. In April, the library was presented with a check for $2,000 to assist with flood recovery needs.
