UCC Helps Louisiana Flood Victims
August 31, 2016
Contract monitoring provider United Central Control (UCC), is providing aid to Louisiana flood victims.
Described as the worst U.S. disaster since Hurricane Sandy, the record-breaking August storms have left more than 60,000 homes damaged and thousands of Louisiana residents homeless in its wake.
Though the floodwaters may have receded, the efforts to aid Louisiana flood victims have just begun. To help, UCC is rolling up its sleeves to deliver basic necessities to those in need. “Our hearts and prayers go out to the good people of Louisiana. We have personal ties in the affected areas. Not only do we help to protect some of the affected families by providing monitoring services to a local Louisiana dealer, a family member of our dispatchers lost her home to the flooding,” said Teresa Gonzalez, UCC’s president.
“We are hoping as word gets out more and more people will want to get involved. We learned from our dealer customer that we could best comfort its residents by helping to fulfill the immediate with basic everyday items, such as hand sanitizer, shampoo, conditioner, soap, baby wipes and other essential toiletries. Our team is collecting the items along with gift cards and shipping them to our dealer, who will coordinate the distribution of the care packages to those affected by the devastation.”
How you can help: In response to requests to participate, UCC has created a webpage to collect contributions at TeamUCC.com/help-louisiana-flood-victims. One hundred percent of the proceeds will be used to purchase supplies and gift cards, which will be sent by UCC to EATEL to aid flood victims.
