To our friends, families, and neighbors affected by Hurricane Laura, the hearts of the entire Cotton Team are with you.
This week, we saw how quickly and drastically a hurricane can impact an entire city. As we returned to our office in Lake Charles and visited communities in the path of the storm, we saw buildings destroyed and homes torn apart. It’s not easy to see because these aren’t just buildings or physical homes; they represent our community. They’re where we dedicate our talents to provide for our families and house our most cherished memories of each generation. Each building has a story to tell, and it’s our story.
As part of this community, Cotton is heartbroken to see the destruction. We’ll be doing everything we can to bring normalcy to Lake Charles, Orange, Beaumont, and the rest of the communities impacted by Hurricane Laura. The road to recovery is long, but we are confident in its success because the community is resilient and optimistic.
The Cotton Team is currently in the field, assessing damages with clients and providing temporary facilities, food services, temporary roofs, and restoration services to protect businesses. I have also given direction to our Cotton Foundation and Community Response teams to deploy initiatives important to the needs of children and families. We will help you rebuild until the city is back up and running. If there’s anything we can do for you, please don’t hesitate to give us a call: (877) 511-2962.
