Brother <<First Name>>

Hurricane Ida has come and gone, leaving much devastation in her wake.  This is the time for our Fraternity to show our resiliency, and our commitment to our Craft and our fellowman. Lafourche, Terrebonne, and St. Charles parishes were severely punished by the storm.  These parishes and the city of New Orleans are still without electrical power as of this writing.

The following distribution centers have been setup for the damaged areas:
 
Acacia Shrine Temple
7991 Commerce Ave.
Baton Rouge, LA 

Jerusalem Shriners
1940 Ormand Blvd.
Destrehan, LA

Terrebonne Fellowship Lodge
210 Oakview Dr.
Houma, LA

Many have already stepped up to help, including our appendant bodies and local lodges.  I hesitate to name them for fear of failing to identify every group and individual that has contributed so far.  Simply stated, the desire to help and the help already sent is heartwarming and makes me even more proud to be a Freemason.
  • Much is needed and the following is a non-exclusive list:
  • Large Tarps
  • 4x8 sheets of plywood
  • Nails and fasteners
  • Portable generators
  • Cleaning supplies of every sort (including bleach, mops, buckets, brooms and brushes)   
  • Regular and snow type shovels        
  • Non-perishable food items
  • Bread (yes bread)    
  • Diapers    
  • Clothing        
  • Blankets    
  • Gloves (rubber and leather/canvas)
  • Toiletries – (razors, soap, combs, hairbrushes, toothpaste, tooth brushes, deodorant, Kleenex, toilet paper)
  • Gas/fuel and fuel containers
  • Batteries and flashlights        
  • Detergents

Please keep the lodges, sisters and brothers in your prayers as we go forward.  We will do everything we can to assist them going forward.

May God bless you, your family and Freemasons everywhere.


 
Fraternally,

Terry Fowler, G∴M∴
