Give till it hurts

On a somber note, the good people who have been affected by Hurricane Katrina need your help.  A lot of positive talk has been put forth in the media regarding the cleanup but a lot of people are still in need who are not getting help. 

For those Zealot readers who live in the Champaign-Urbana area, there is a drop-off area on Mattis two blocks north of Bradley in Champaign.  They are collecting canned and dry food goods as well as toiletries that will be shipped down to relocated victims in Mississippi to those that really need it.  They will be collecting goods on Wednesday and Thursday from 11am-2pm and 5-8pm. 

(A big hat tip to TLC Trucking who is not only donating a truck but the driver to transport it)

For those outside the C-U area, it won’t take too much investigating to find a local support effort going on.  Get involved!  Donate your time and goods.  If there isn’t anything going on, start up your own local support effort.  It’s amazing what one or two people can do.

Finally, one easy way to help is to donate to the Red Cross.  I’ve put a banner in my sidebar.
