Hurricane Michael Recovery Fund

United Way of Southeast Louisiana and Entercom announce the launch of the Hurricane Michael Relief Fund to aid in rebuilding efforts for areas affected by the storm.                                                                  

United Way is creating the Hurricane Michael Relief Fund to support local communities in the surrounding areas affected by Hurricane Michael as part of our effort to build stronger communities and fight for the health and safety of every person in every community.

Please address mail-in donations to:

One hundred percent of funds will support mid- and long-term recovery efforts through local United Ways in the areas affected by Michael.
