Relief in the form of volunteer workers, supplies, furniture contributions and love descended on Acadiana from June 4 – 11, 2017, with the manpower being provided by Eight Days of Hope volunteers from around the U. S. Organization President Stephen Tybor III said, “Thousands of families in the area are trying to figure out how they can rebuild their homes because of the mass damage. Those who are waiting for assistance in the rebuilding process are looking for help, for hope. Eight Days of Hope’s goal is to bring a ray of hope to those who are in need and to help them rebuild their homes. We are excited to partner with Love Acadiana and local leaders to bless as many as possible.”
Eight Days of Hope plans to revisit Acadiana from August 31 to September 4, 2017.
