Local Isaac Relief Volunteers Still Urgently Needed, Reminded to Register First


Baton Rouge, La. - Lt. Governor Jay Dardenne is reminding citizens that Louisiana's official volunteer agency has a critical need for assistance with relief efforts following Hurricane Isaac's pass through the state.

Louisianians wishing to volunteer should register at www.VolunteerLouisiana.gov, after which they will be contacted by email as opportunities arise. Volunteers have the option of registering for any number of specific "interest areas," but are reminded not to self-deploy, especially to the hardest hit areas of the state.

Other information found on www.VolunteerLouisiana.gov includes donation opportunities, an interactive map of volunteer centers throughout the state and links to other volunteer organizations.

For more information contact Janet Pace at jpace@crt.la.gov.
