Taking a TIME OUT from CELEBRATING NEW ORLEANS… As we focus on helping our neighbors after the FLOOD.
We have been CELEBRATING NEW ORLEANS here at ADEETA since the day we were allowed back into our office building after Hurricane Katrina in October of 2005. However, we are taking our first ever TIME OUT from CELEBRATING to focus on reaching out, lending a hand, and returning a favor to our dear friends in Baton Rouge and its surrounding areas.
When Katrina hit, New Orleanians headed … well, everywhere! But many of us headed west and landed in the Baton Rouge area. Our friends, relatives and even strangers took us in, gave us food, offered us a bed, lent us some clothes and helped us figure out what to do next. Now, after 11 years, it’s our turn to return that kindness.
On the heels of record flooding, New Orleanians have already begun our PAY IT FORWARD (PAY IT BACK?) efforts. You see, if anyone understands the plight of our fellow Louisianians who are pulling up carpet, tossing out refrigerators, and facing mounds of lifetime treasures out on their front lawns, it’s us. Though it has been 11 years, the raw emotions from our own personal tragedy come flooding quickly back. And we have to say, “How can we help?”
Already busloads and truckloads of people and supplies have made their way to those in need bringing with them diapers, cleaning supplies, clothes, BBQ, and more. They donned boots and rubber gloves and swept up, mopped up, hauled trash and then provided a shoulder to lean on. While we are proud of how quickly we got movingd and by the amount of support our NOLA folks have given, we remind ourselves of just how long this effort needs to go on… and it’s a really long time.
So, if you haven’t been able to do anything yet and are looking for a way to participate in the effort to help those in need, we are happy to suggest you can start by contacting Second Harvest, Junior League of New Orleans or United Way of Southeast Louisiana. They are terrific organizations… and we should know, because we work with them and support their causes as well. You can also look up Citizens for 1 Greater New Orleans as they have compiled a long list of avenues for aid.
And, even though we are focused a bit on our friends down the road, we are still focused on our own business mission here at ADEETA. You will find us at our desks, Mondays through Fridays, hard at work, helping the BEST EMPLOYERS in town find the TOP TALENT they need for their businesses to be successful – and that TOP TALENT could be YOU! As we’ve said many times…We LOVE what we do! We are truly committed to helping improve NEW ORLEANS’ workplaces and careers, one HIRE at a time. If you happen to be looking for SOMETHING NEW, or need staffing assistance for Temp, Temp-to-Hire or Direct Hire positions, just give us a call. We would love to work with you!
Prayers for all who are facing the challenges of rebuilding… our hearts and minds (and some of our hands) are with you!
