I’ve seen people post on their blogs that they don’t know who to give money to; every group can use your help, but the Houston Food Bank is actually coordinating the food drive efforts right here in Houston. For every $1 that you give, they can get $25 worth of food. Right now, they need help for the victims of Katrina – and no matter where you are at, you can help. Please consider making a donation to either the Houston Food Bank or America’s Second Harvest.
Meanwhile, as I said in my previous post, I am collecting knitted or crocheted goods for the smallest victims. For right now, things such as baby bootees or small children socks are probably best; as we get more into fall, things like sweaters and blankets will be needed. I will take anything I receive to the Northwest Assistance Ministry to distribute to those in need. Leave a comment with your e-mail if you would like more details. Raid your stash, knit for the babies!
