On behalf of the Pelican Chapter, ABC Board of Directors, we would like to personally ask that you keep ABC in your thoughts and prayers as you support our community who have lost so very much. ABC and members of our staff have experienced great losses.
The ABC Baton Rouge campus suffered damage to all buildings. You can see images of the massive damage to our training and administrative facilities below. To overcome the impact of the cost of rebuilding our facilities, we must reach out to you for help. Cost of cleanup and sanitizing the facilities has exceeded $200,000. Refurbishing and restoring our campus is expected to run an additional $700,000. We must replace everything from books and tools to office supplies, copy machines and air conditioning units, welding machines, motors for millwright labs, laser alignment equipment and on and on.
We ask that you make your contribution direct to Pelican Chapter, ABC. You may make a donation in the form of check or credit card below. Please forward your check payable to: Pelican Chapter, ABC, 19251 Highland Road, Baton Rouge, LA 70809; memo: "ABC Flood Relief."
Or, you can make a charitable donation to the Louisiana Construction Education Foundation (LCEF). The LCEF is graciously assisting in raising the funds necessary to restore our facilities. Please forward your check payable to: LCEF, P.O. Box 82868, Baton Rouge, LA 70884; memo: "ABC Flood Relief."
In closing, we want to express our sincere appreciation to all those who supported members of the ABC staff through donations to the Employee Relief Fund through the Baton Rouge Area Foundation. Your generosity went a long way in helping our team members restore their homes and provided a degree of normalcy to their lives.
Thank you again for your kind consideration to help assist the needs of the ABC staff and to bring back the ABC campus to continue our service to you and all members!
With warm regards,
