Wednesday P.M.

These deployments in the aftermath of a major disaster always face roadblocks, detours, delays, and challenges.

The update today is, power has not been fully restored as had been expected for many areas.

That means the demand for Mercy Chefs meals is still very strong. In fact, we just hit another milestone -- 70,000 meals served in response to Hurricane Laura

Just a few days ago, we crossed 40,000 meals. We served more meals on the Labor Day holiday than we did during any day since the start of the deployment.

We're still expecting power and water to really get rolling for most people soon, but that means I still have a challenge of thousands more meals to serve this week. And the bills are piling up again.

Can you help?

I want to serve this community to the best of our ability during this critical phase of emergency recovery, but I need help from friends like you. Will you partner with me to help sponsor the more than 20,000 meals we'll serve this week here in the Lake Charles area? Go here to make your tax-deductible gift and help Mercy Chefs feed hurricane victims right now while we continue other efforts:

As always, thank you so much for your faithful prayers and support.

God bless!

Gary LeBlanc, Mercy Chefs
