LSU received well-deserved online praise from the Federal Emergency Management Agency for the football program’s help in lifting survivors after the recent flood in Louisiana.
On Friday morning, FEMA tweeted a message of thanks to the Tigers for their part in assisting the community.

Below is the tweet that caught FEMA’s attention. The photos were snapped during a visit to Celtic Studios, where about 700 refugees have found shelter. More than 20,000 people have been rescued during the event.

Clearly, it’s great to see these acts of kindness to assist those going through an awful time. Others throughout the SEC have helped, too. Alabama, affected by a 2011 Tuscaloosa tornado, will fill an 18-wheeler to help those in Louisiana who need it.
Meanwhile, South Carolina loaded two equipment trucks with supplies that will be sent to Louisiana. A major flood that affected Columbia, South Carolina, last year moved the LSU-South Carolina game to Baton Rouge.

The more helpful hands, the better.
