OLATHE, Kan. — The Terracon Foundation announced two $5,000 grants to food banks in Louisiana for food and supplies following Hurricane Ida’s landfall on Aug. 29. The storm left over one million people without power in what is being reported as one of the strongest hurricanes ever to hit the U.S. mainland.
The grants include a $5,000 donation to Second Harvest Food Bank in New Orleans and a $5,000 donation to Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank in Baton Rouge.
“Terracon is proud to support local food banks in Louisiana serving people in the communities severely impacted by the devastating hurricane,” said Gayle Packer, Terracon chair, president, and CEO.
The Terracon Foundation strives to become a real part of the lives of Terracon employees and the communities we serve. To date, the Terracon Foundation has granted more than $3 million to community organizations, universities, dependents of employees, and for disaster relief efforts.
