Non-Monetary Donations For Hurricane Katrina Survivors
Non-Monetary Donations For Hurricane Katrina Survivors
I have been looking for days for ways to help the Hurricane Katrina survivors, both human and animal, by non-monetary means. After many emails, and phone calls I have received several ways people can help. These are by no means the only places. If anyone would like me to post their location for drop offs, deliveries, or somwhere to ship non-monetary donations I would be more than happy to do so.
