As a result of Hurricane Rita, we started Operation: A Cajun Christmas (OCC)! We set up in Vermilion parish to help the people from Louisiana who escaped west from New Orleans. A week after we started collecting items for this effort, Hurricane Rita ended up hitting Vermilion parish. We shifted OCC to Vermilion parish at this point. We gave Christmas to 7,000 children and two tractor trailer loads of donated gifts!
