Because of the large number of homeowners that were affected, they are not only in need of money support but also volunteers' helping. Buresh expects that up to 75 volunteers will sign up to assist All Hands Volunteers in Louisiana. Volunteers already there have come from as far away as the United Kingdom. 

During this extremely difficult time, many local families have been affected. Thanks for the help of volunteers, thousands of people and animals have been rescued from Louisiana flooding. 

Many of the homeowners who live in areas inundated with floodwaters have no flood insurance, a problem that will leave them draining savings accounts and relying on federal disaster programs to rebuild and repair.
