**Ways to Help Baton Rouge Flood Victims**
BAEO has been closely monitoring the massive flooding still
impacting thousands of families in the greater Baton Rouge area. Our thoughts
and prayers are with all of those affected. As many local schools are being
used as shelters for families seeking relief from water-logged homes, it is our
hope that learning can still take place for young people to give them some
sense of normalcy.
