With many north Louisiana resident still reeling from the floods earlier this year, the local chapter of the American Red Cross is working twice as hard to not only continue to serve our area,  but also help  the southern parishes in the wake of the current disastrous flooding.

Although the current flood has affected roughly the same number of parishes, nearly 4 times the number of homes have been affected, says Executive Director Michelle Davison.

After the recent flooding disaster devastated the area, many found help from the American Red Cross, as countless others have done before. The Red Cross hosts it's annual BASH on Saturday, April 30 at JPS Aviation Hanger 9 near the Monroe Regional Airport. The Bash is a fundraiser to help pay for services the organization provides. This year all of the money raised at the Monroe BASH will remain in the community to help residents clean up the aftermath of the floods.
