Two weeks after Hurricane Laura pillaged the southern part of the state it still looks like an uphill battle for many of our fellow Cajuns. According to ABC 13 Entergy, the energy company that provides power to parts of Louisiana and Texas, reports more than 85,000 customers are still without power in Louisiana. Can you imagine going two weeks without electricity? The Ark-La-Tex was very fortunate in missing the wrath of Hurricane Laura.

Denny Rogers with Landers in Bossier City is no stranger to Lake Charles and the surrounding areas. Lake Charles is where he met his late wife Renee and where their kids call home. Denny checked in with several of his friends and family members who said "Please don't forget about us! There is still so much to do and we are low on supplies". With that comment in mind, Rogers plans to make a trip down to South Louisiana with his longtime friend Scott Tarkowski to help out our fellow Cajuns and to bring the much-needed supplies to them.
