Hurricane Katrina: How You Can Help
Return to Homepage
I feel completely cut-off from what's happening in the U.S., but thanks to the Internet I can sort of follow the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, and it's absolutely heartwrenching.
Private relief organizations are struggling to provide the most basic necessities (food, water and shelter) to the residents of Louisiana and Mississippi whose lives have been destroyed by Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath.
If you would like to help by donating your money or your time, here is a list of relief organizations to contact:
American Red Cross"
Operation Blessing International
America's Second Harvest
, 800-344-8070 -- Food Bank
Catholic Charities USA
Lutheran Disaster Response
Mennonite Disaster Service
, 717-859-2210 -- The Mennonites were especially helpful in my area after the Cedar Fire
If you have the ability to open your home to hurricane evacuees, contact MoveOn.org's Hurricanhousing.org
