Community Raises Money for Louisiana Flood Relief

Community Raises Money for Louisiana Flood Relief - MMORPG.com

The SMITE community is reaching out in tangible ways to the victims of recent and catastrophic floods in Louisiana. SMITE players raised over $36,000 for flood relief efforts, bringing the total revenue generated for charity to $700,000 over the years.

Four days of torrential rain earlier this month produced massive flooding across South Louisiana. The deluge flooded and damaged more than 100,000 homes and left thousands with no place to go. In response, people and companies have given generously to help South Louisiana recover from the kind of flood that only happens every 1,000 years.

The Baton Rouge Area Foundation is among the largest community foundations in the United States, with a mission to improve the lives of people across South Louisiana.

Funds were raised through a three day sale on the Independence Chest with $2 of every purchase heading to flood recovery.
