Hurricane Ida Slams PAC

Hurricane Ida's second landfall occurred in our Tribal Territory, bringing a wave of destruction and 150 mph winds.  There is extensive damage to and destruction of homes.  This has been a devastating blow to our Tribal community.  

We will need help in the long-term recovery and rebuilding process. Our goal is to support our tribal members so that they can resiliently rebuild.  We will provide more information on how you can help and what is needed. 

We are very grateful for the donations received.  This had made a difference to the lives of our Tribal members as we recover from this unprecedented storm. 

Right now, we need

  • Building Materials including Wood, plywood, wood screws, nails, hammers

  • Assistance/Labor with Rebuilding

  • Contractors who can give people quotes for FEMA appeals

  • Temporary Living Structures

  • Rolling magnets to pick up nails/screws

  • Dehumidifiers

  • Storage Sheds

  • Temporary Living Structures

  • ***Please no clothes, we have received an abundance of clothes donations. 

It took a month for electricity and running water to be restored, and almost three months for internet to be restored. 

The most important thing we need right now is temporary housing while they repair their lives.   If you have a camper trailer that you would like to donate, please contact us.
