I'm sure everyone has seen the news regarding the damage left in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. I'd like to encourage anyone and everyone to help out any way they can. The American Red Cross has mobilized thousands of volunteers to respond in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, which completely devastated parts of Louisiana and left at least 55 people dead. The Red Cross is mobilizing every available resource from across the country including thousands of staff and volunteers to respond to this storm. Red Cross volunteers and donors are neighbors helping neighbors. Volunteers are already on the ground staffing shelters for tens of thousands of people in five states?Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Texas. I realize that it's impractical to volunteer due to our geography. However, There are other ways we can help.
