IICF Southeast 12 Months of Giving Fill the Truck Campaign

About This Campaign

September will benefit Second Harvest Food Bank to provide support to those impacted by Hurricane Ida

In the wake of Hurricane Ida, IICF is offering a safe and impactful way to respond. We are working with Second Harvest Food Bank, which serves the greater region of South Louisiana, to provide non-perishable food, toiletry items, diapers for our youngest community members, and other desperately needed supplies in the days and weeks to come.

You can send items directly to Second Harvest to be distributed in the local Louisiana community here:
