During the historic flooding of 2016 in the Acadiana area, Acadiana United helped 131 families.
AU organized crews that bravely went out in the face of danger to rescue families that were trapped in their homes. These crew members lent their boats and vehicles and selflessly helped those in need.
AU also had a warehouse/distribution center that housed many essential goods that were available to those in need. These items ranged from cases of water, food, and cleaning supplies to diapers and dog food.
