The Fuller Center was recently alerted to a YouTube video that has been seen nearly 20,000 times and provides some of the best footage from the flooding in Livingston Parish, which is where the Fuller Center Disaster ReBuilders have established a base to help families recover from the disaster that struck last summer.
The Disaster ReBuilders are currently in Denham Springs, La., and are welcoming volunteers who want to help. Click here to learn more about volunteering with the Disaster ReBuilders.
Livingston Parish borders Tangipahoa Parish, another hard-hit community where the Ginger Ford Northshore Fuller Center for Housing is based. Ginger Ford is hosting a 4-day flood recovery build in April and also hosts Fuller Center U.S. Builders teams working in flood recovery.
The video above features many scenes from the flooding and features interviews with many affected residents, including actor/director John Schneider (“Dukes of Hazzard,” “Smallville”), who lives in Livingston Parish and has a production studio there. As he states in the video:
“That’s how God works. God sends people — people who care.” — John Schneider, actor/producer/director and Livingston Parish resident
Also in the video, you can see people wearing “This is church” T-shirts. These come from one of our church partners on the ground — Christ Community Church of Denham Springs.
