Addresses for Katrina Care packages

Here is another link with addresses and lists of supplies that the displaced citizens of the areas devastated by Katrina need. The state of Texas especially is groaning under the weight of tens of thousands of people who have NOTHING. Don't forget about the other states with shelters filled to capacity, though. We can help. In addition to the links in my prior post I offer this:

Katrina Aid

God bless you and thank you for helping. No matter how small.

The cubs and I are going shopping this week for small items. Toothbrushes, toothpaste, school supplies - that kind of stuff. It feels good to help in some small way. I just can't stand that helpless feeling. Can't stand it.

I would like to point out that there are a few places on this list that are now accepting clothing items.

We here in my little corner of the world feel so much sympathy for the survivors of this ordeal. We pray for the ones who perished AND for the ones who survived.

I think it was sweet when an R&B singer mentioned that, even though the government was helping out alot, they don't know that little girls need panties...

Thank you for posting info like this.

p.s. My son-in-law is down at the New Orleans airport, he's with the 82nd Airbourne, U.S. Army.

Alice - thank your son for me. The 82nd Airborne doing relief work in the wake of a natural disaster. God bless this country.

You are right about the government. Our government can help in many ways but you are right it is the private citizens who will take the best care of the people who need it most.

There will probably be a much more diverse set of ways to contribute as the crisis dies down and the realities of everyday life once again set in.

Unfortunately, the ability to help out in more ways also usually comes in direct relation to people's interest in the story. Let's hope that this doesn't go away as time goes on.
