Lowe’s helps evacuees from Louisiana
A Lake Charles, La., family who evacuated to Kemper County was in the Philadelphia Lowe's last week stocking up on supplies to donate to their storm-ravaged community after a direct hit by Hurricane Laura when they got the surprise of their lives.
They had evacuated to their Kemper County hunting camp and were in Philadelphia on Friday planning to head back first thing Saturday to see what was left after the Category 4 storm hit Thursday.

“We immediately all started balling,” she wrote. “God is SO SO GOOD & FAITHFUL
