A comprehensive network to direct you to exactly the way you want to help
The mission of Relief Connections
is to provide a forum where community, religious, and civic groups affected by Hurricane Katrina can connect with similar groups across the nation and world who can aid in their recovery.
SO - do you have clothes you're dying to donate? Have a job to offer? Want to help locate missing persons? You can locate NEEDS and GROUPS by type or name. It takes a little while to get used to the interactive format, but I think this is an amazing resource, and you can add your own offer to help or needs as well.
Also, if you are wanting to send products to people in Houston, the Personal Health Kits and Hope in a Box Kits
coordinated by the Medical Benevolence Foundation
is a great and effective way of sending immediate needs to those who are homeless. Many of you have told me how helpful this was, and I know some of you have been passing around this info so I wanted to mention it again.
