GUEST,J Hurricane Relief: How can I help? (29) RE: Hurricane Relief: How can I help? 04 Sep 05

Our church here in Franklin, Tn. has been able to procure standard 40 ft. trailers. 2 so far and commitment for a constant stream as long as they're needed. The speaker today just happened to have his house designated as a distribution point as the National Guard told him they were swamped(No pun intended). He's from Biloxi, Ms. We went to Sam's Club and the place was jammed. There was a sign up at the church for people to volunteer and list their skills and phone #. My girlfriend signed up as she's a PT with nursing training. We took our purchases directly to where the trailers were being loaded. I physically helped in unloading our truck so we KNOW where the money went. Google search Grace Chapel, Franklin, Tn. if you wish to donate to this particular relief effort. The two trailers were leaving today and there will be busloads of people going down for weeks/months depending on their level of time available. Wherever you are for sure there is something similar going on if you're moved to help. I'm speaking with my employer tomorrow about the option of taking time off to go. Anything we can contribute in terms of time, money or materials from wherever we may be is needed.
