The devastation of Hurricane Laura in southwest Louisiana has left many displaced families including the Calcasieu Parish Arc clients who are being temporarily housed at a LaPlace hotel.

on September 1, 2020 Sheriff Mike Tregre and a few officers stopped by the hotel to drop off bags of sanitizer, disinfecting wipes, masks and snack packs of crackers for clients and the Arc workers assisting clients. Coloring books, puzzles, activity books and clothing also were provided for children.

SJSO employees were happy to come together to help their neighbors in need.
