Gulf Coast Fund Testimonials
"On behalf of all of us who have experienced the wrath of nature from Hurricanes Katrina and Gustav, please allow me to say thank you for opening your hearts to help. After Hurricane Katrina took aim on our community, our lives were changed forever. The process of cleaning up and rebuilding has been long and hard.....projections are that we will be in the recovery phase for up to 10 years. However, had it not been for the generosity of so many people and organizations, we would have never made it this far. To that end, I can only say that you have made a difference to so very many people who have never even met you....but we thank you!"
