HELP Make Life a Little Easier in Hopedale, Louisiana

Postby RudyGomez » Sat Feb 04, 2006 9:50 am

Capt. Ben Leto is an inshore fishing guide in Hopedale, Louisiana. The community where he lives was completely wiped out by Hurricane Katrina and it's been difficult getting life back to normal.

Since the storm, many well intentioned friends and acquaintances have asked Ben what they could do to help. For a while, Ben had trouble answering this question, but now he's come up with a simple plan to make everyone's life in his community a lot easier...

Most of the community's inhabitants currently living in trailers or tents – neither of which have washers or dryers. Residents are currently driving over 1 hour (each way) to the nearest Laundromat to do their laundry.

Ben's plan is to raise enough money to purchase a small portable building and a couple of washer and dryers to place inside of it. This is one thing that will benefit the whole community. He also wants it to be a place where residents can wash their clothes for free.

If you would like to help, donations are being accepted through Ben's PayPal account: alysha@bellsouth.net

UPDATE: As of today (Feb. 3, 2006), Ben has raised $290 in donations for the washer and dryer project. In addition to the money that has been donated, someone has been nice enough to donate their used washing machine.
