hen Jim Lucas saw the devastation Hurricane Ida left behind, he knew he had to help.
“Living in New Orleans for the first 20 years of my life and then living down here for so long, we know what effects a major hurricane can have,” said Jim Lucas, president and CEO of Legal GraphicWorks in West Palm Beach.
“My dad is 88 and he’s homebound,” said Lucas, whose father lives in New Orleans. “Seeing it is absolutely heartbreaking, I mean it really is.”
The West Palm Beach business owner is now collecting donations with the help of his employees at Legal GraphicWorks, some who also have ties to the New Orleans area.
“Everyone that I know there is dealing with some kind of damage,” said Dan Doskey, vice president of video services at Legal GraphicWorks.
The team plans to take the nearly 12-hour drive and deliver everything collected face to face.
