On Wednesday, August 26, 2012, Hurricane Isaac hit the shores of the States of Mississippi and Louisiana. On September 1, 2012, community leaders gave tours to members of Operation People for Peace, Inc. to show the devastation that Hurricane Isaac had caused in the areas of Pearlington, MS and the community of Forrest Heights in Gulfport, MS.
Both of these communities have several residents whose homes had up to 4’ of water in them due to Hurricane Isaac, some of them who lost their homes during Katrina.
By September 6, 2012, Operation People for Peace was able to take a truck load of supplies donated by Hillcrest Baptist Church on E. Nine Mile Rd in Pensacola, FL to the areas of Pearlington and Gulfport, MS. Additionally, they visited Plaquemines Parish and LaPlace, LA where the water had finally receded. In these target areas Operation People for Peace, Inc. Chair-Art Rocker and members of Hillcrest Baptist Church passed out cleaning supplies, food and personal items to those in need. LaPlace, LA and Plaquemines Parish in Louisiana are both areas that have been greatly affected by Hurricane Isaac, where water in many places was waist high and thousands or more families have had to move in with each other because their homes are unlivable.
Operation People for Peace, Inc will be visiting the areas affected by Hurricane Isaac for the next 6 weeks or until they run out of supplies/donations for Isaac victims. If you or any business or church you are a part of would like to donate please contact us.
