A Louisiana insurance executive reports more than 5,800 e-mail responses to her appeal for help with hurricane relief efforts.[@@]

Robelynn H. Abadie, head of Abadie Financial Services, Baton Rouge, says she also received well over a ton of shipped relief items and many cash donations in response to an article about her efforts published on the National Underwriter Web site Sept. 8.

Donations were given to local charities and to the Million Dollar Round Table Foundation’s Matching Katrina Relief program, Abadie says.

“Boxes continue to arrive almost daily and are distributed to evacuees in local shelters and homes,” she says. “It is with a deep sense of appreciation and pride in our industry friends, that I thank everyone who so generously supported the immediate needs of the Louisiana citizens ravished by Katrina.”

Many of the relief supplies have also been used to ease the plight of victims of the second storm, Rita, that hit Louisiana last month, Abadie says.
