Samaritan’s Purse volunteers have been on cleanup duty in Louisiana. The group helped clear a path there after Hurricane Laura.

Volunteers chopped up downed trees, repaired roofs and lent a helping hand.

“Our goal overall is to love and help people in Jesus’ name, let them know that God loves them. We are using this storm to go see people who need help,” said Lorenzo Torres, the program manager in North Wilkesboro for Samaritan’s Purse.

Volunteers hit the ground in Louisiana on Saturday and targeted the hardest hit areas after Hurricane Laura. They’ve also helped families with their needs.

“Right now, we are seeing widespread devastation, large trees are down, severely damaged roofs — some got blown off,” described Torres.

These volunteers will log some serious hours. Torres said they could use a little back-up.

“Things are really tough. We can definitely use the help,” said Torres.

Samaritan’s Purse is in need of volunteers to come help.
