Louisiana fund for hospital heroes affected by hurricane Laura

Hurricane Laura caused major destruction in parts of Louisiana, especially in the Southwest region. The impact of this Category 4 storm has been devastating for many hospital heroes who experienced significant property loss or personal hardship but continued to care for patients before, during and after the hurricane. In an effort to provide some relief the Louisiana Hospital Association Research and Education Foundation (LHAREF), a 501(c)(3) organization established the Louisiana Care Fund to provide assistance to hospital employees who so desperately need help. Please consider making a donation online at or by mailing a check payable to the Louisiana Care Fund, with a completed donation form, to the LHA Research and Education Foundation, 9521 Brookline Avenue, Baton Rouge, LA 70809. Contributions are tax-deductible, and all administrative services are being provided in kind so that 100% of donations will be used to assist hospital employees. Individuals who donate will receive a written or electronic acknowledgment, including information needed for tax purposes.
