The Community Foundation of North Louisiana has launched a website that’s said to be a one-stop shop for flood relief resources.

The agency’s Community Information Manager Susan Campbell is the director of LINCC, which stands for Louisiana Initiative for Nonprofit and Community Collaboration. She said the website is where the community can go to learn about volunteer opportunities, goods and services needs, and coordinated relief efforts.

“For instance, if someone wants to volunteer with victims of our recent floods, then you can go to the website and there is a list of non-profits and local organizations that are requesting volunteer needs, they are collecting donations, furniture items, toiletry items, and you can find those on LINCC,” she said.

She also told me if you have been affected by the floods and you need assistance with mucking out your home, food boxes, furniture, hygiene items, anything you might need in an emergency, there’s a list of organizations and disaster relief programs that have come in and have set up distribution areas to provide those neede services to our community.

For residents who might be dealing with power cut-offs, or whose computers may have been damaged by floodwaters, the agency has also partnered with Shreve Memorial and Bossier Parish Libraries, which will have the LINCC website on their computers.
