Our community is mourning the loss of three members of local law enforcement and praying for the others who were injured in Sunday’s violence. Our hearts are heavy for their losses. Here are some ways to help…
- BRAF Donations to Fund for Police, First Responders
The Baton Rouge Area Foundation is accepting donations to a charitable fund for providing relief to officers who were wounded on Sunday and to the families of officers who were killed.
The East Baton Rouge First Responders Fund is overseen by East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff Sid Gautreaux, Baton Rouge Police Chief Carl Dabadie Jr., Baton Rouge Fire Chief Ed Smith and Louisiana State Police Major Mike Noel.
Donations to the charitable fund can be made through the Foundation’s website, BRAF.org/EBRFirstResponders. Contributions to the Fund are tax deductible.
- Woman’s Community Blood Drive
Many of us want to support our community in its time of need, but aren’t sure how. Giving blood is a great way to give back.
Please join us for a blood drive at Woman’s on Friday, August 5 from 10:00 AM-2:00 PM at the main hospital entrance.
- Symbolic Gestures
You may see more flags at half mast and blue wreaths or bows on doors and mailboxes to symbolize support for our law enforcement.
Woman’s fountains will be lit in blue for the next week in honor of our law enforcement agencies. These brave men and women put their lives on the line to protect us and our families. Please remember them in your thoughts and prayers.
