LINCC promotes “Make a Difference” Spring Break in northwest Louisiana

Throughout the 2016 flood, Louisiana Initiative for Nonprofit and Community Collaboration (LINCC) has partnered with local government, nonprofits, and VOAD (Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster) to provide a wide-ranging emergency resource directory of community needs such as sandbags, food, cleaning supplies, & volunteers.

Flood spring breakThe Bossier, Caddo, De Soto, and Webster parish schools will be on Spring Break March 28-April 1. LINCC is asking local students to give a day to help their neighbors through organized volunteer efforts that can be found on the LINCC website at www.lincc.us.

Four disaster relief clean up groups are providing daily trainings on cleaning out flooded homes to provide a healthy and safe volunteer experience.

Students over age 14 can participate with a consent form from the disaster relief organization signed by their parent or guardian.
