Sammy Casts Charity Net
Sammy Kershaw has partnered with the organization, protectourcoastline.org, to help fishermen in Louisiana who have been affected by the recent oil spill along the Louisiana coast.
The nonprofit organization will benefit the Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Foundation and the America’s WETLAND Foundation, which heads the “Campaign to Save Coastal Louisiana” project. “I understand the importance of both the seafood industry and the wetlands to Louisiana,” says Sammy, a native of the state who lives in Lafayette, La., “and protectourcoastline.org is determined to help those affected by this disaster come back stronger than ever.” Sammy also tells Country Weekly, “The fishermen and the shrimpers are in desperate need of help. We’re going to make sure that every penny goes to where it’s needed the most.” For more on Sammy, check out the May 31 issue of Country Weekly, where he talks about his new album, Better Than I Used to Be, and his upcoming campaign for the office of Lt. Governor of Louisiana. That issue hits newsstands May 24.
