Habitat for Humanity Restore Southeast St. Vicent De Paul Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank Presbytery of South Louisiana SoLaRebuild Rebuilding Together Baton Rouge LA Flood Love WVLA, WGMB, and WBRL celebrated Founder’s Day by focusing on those affected by the massive flooding that devastated the Baton Rouge area in August of 2016. LA Flood Love and SoLARebuild partnered with the stations to rebuild houses and provide furniture for homes still in disrepair. In all, they delivered furniture and repaired over 20 homes in this effort. The Baton Rouge Food Bank and St. Vincent de Paul teamed up with WVLA to ensure that families struggling financially, after the loss of their home and personal belongings, have the food they need every day. The Baton Rouge staff donated hundreds of hours of volunteering across the three days. They provided not only materials to help those affected by the flood, but also showed the community what "Baton Rouge Proud" means.
