How to help Louisiana flooding victims

By Amy Chillag CNN

(CNN)  Southern Louisiana is being hit hard by deadly, historic flooding on top of the record floods the state suffered earlier this year.

Impact Your World has identified charities on the ground providing support.

The Salvation Army, which is dealing with flooding at its Baton Rouge facility, is helping thousands of residents who were forced to evacuate their homes.

The organization is assisting with disaster relief resources such as canteens (mobile feeding units), clean up and hygiene kits and sending support personnel to the affected areas. You can volunteer or donate money to the Salvation Army's Gulf Coast fund to help the cause.

The United Way invites you to help flood relief efforts by volunteering or making a donation through the United Way of Southeast Louisiana. Citizens in need of services should dial 211, which is a hotline operating 24/7.

Convoy of Hope is providing food, water, equipment and relief supplies to southern Louisiana. You can support their work here: Convoy of Hope. Please indicate you want the money donated to go towards the Louisiana August 2016 flood relief efforts.

Thanks for your concern. Impact Your World will continue to monitor for ways you can help.
