To Help Katrina Refugees

For all those who have asked what they can do to help the refugees who are stranded in my particular section of northern Louisiana, here is the information below.  Though the address is for a church, this is simply a convenient collection point--the effort to take care of these people has no denomination.  You can be very certain that every single penny you donate, or every item you send, will go to some displaced victim of the Great Hurricane of 2005:
 
Checks or cash donations, also boxes of items, can be sent to:
His Hands Ministry
First Baptist Church
500 S. Cooper Ave.
Jonesboro, LA 71251
Please mark your check, envelope or box: Attn: For Katrina Refugees
 
What do these people need that you might be able to send?  Diapers, wipes, formula, baby food, distilled water for mixing with formula and small toys suitable to occupy young children.  Nonperishable food items--canned meats, beans and wieners, spaghetti O's, etc.  Dog and cat food.  Personal hygiene items such as bars of soap, liquid soap, antiseptic wipes, Kleenex; dish washing liquid, clothes detergent; tooth paste, tooth brushes, deodorant, sanitary napkins;  clothing, especially for men; new socks and underwear for all ages.  Any and all of these items will be gratefully accepted.  And you will be blessed.

Hi Jennifer,
Thank you for this info. I will send some items. My heart breaks for all these people. This tragedy is almost more than I can comprehend. I will keep them in my prayers.
