OPELOUSAS - The Hope Alliance Community Development Corporation is announcing they have partnered with the Community Foundation of Acadian to establish a relief fund for the victims of the April 10th tornado near Palmetto.

Donations to the fund can be made at www.cfacadiana.org/hopealliance.

"Some families have lost everything. They have nothing left," said Parish President Jessie Bellard. "Any support we can provide them will be greatly appreciated. This is what St. Landry Parish does best. We help our neighbors."

The EF-3 tornado damaged or destroyed over 15 homes on an 8.7-mile path on Bolden Road southwest of Palmetto to Hwy 360 northeast of Palmetto.

Donations can also be made by mail. Make checks payable to Community Foundation of Acadiana, with Hope Alliance in the memo line. Mail to 1035 Camellia Blvd., Suite 100, Lafayette, LA 70508.
