So far, $2,100 has been raised online. The goal is $20,000.
“All we’re trying to do is get the fisherman paid, so they can focus and make the right decisions on getting their boats back fishing. And they can focus on their families, and they can focus on doing the right things, and not worried about making a paycheck for the next couple of weeks or so,” said Brick. Brick says many local restaurants work with a select group of fisherman in southwest Louisiana — many of whom lost their boats during Ida.
Brick has also set up a GoFundMe for Austinites who would like to help. Adam Brick works for a seafood-based wholesale company in Central Texas. He helped organize the event.
