Plenty may be the organization that will get the most mileage out of small donations:|
In all fairness there is more than enough to go around...
From its headquarters in southern Tennessee, Plenty International is sending relief supplies, food, water and medicines, to refugees from the hurricane Katrina battered Delta regions in Louisiana. A volunteer from California has flown out to Nashville and purchased a full-size school bus which is being stocked with supplies for the first run which is headed to Alexandria, Louisiana. Besides bringing in much needed supplies, the bus will be able to transport people from over-crowded temporary quarters to better and more permanent facilities such as the college dorms and homes that are being offered. We will continue to make these bus runs as long as we can and they are needed.
We are targeting the people who inevitably are falling through the cracks of the larger scale relief efforts being mounted by such agencies as the National Guard, FEMA and the Red Cross.
This is one of those disasters that has been predicted for many years, but now that it has come crashing down, it's difficult to comprehend the human devastation. All we can do is open our hearts and our wallets and extend our hands and reach out to the innocent victims and help them, first just to survive, and then put their lives back together.
