District 13 Council Supports Recovery Efforts After Hurricane Laura

Over the past couple weeks, USW Staff and Members in the District 13 Council have banded together to support recovery efforts throughout Louisiana after being stricken by hurricane Laura. Support locations have been established in Lake Charles at Local Union 555 and in Deridder at Local Union 725.

Read a message with the latest updates from Staff Rep Marty Poche:

This past Friday, we delivered four more pallets of water as well as cooked jambalaya and pastalaya at our Local 725 maintenance hall in DeRidder LA.

Some local members were on hand to help unload supplies as well as delivered hot food to those members working at the site. Other members were able to come by for pick-ups also.

We were even able to call on some local deputies in the area to swing by to eat and show our appreciation for their services.

Special thanks to LU 620 in Gonzales for donating the pastalaya and LU 750 in Norco for donating the jambalaya as well as making the trip to help out with this event.
