Thinking of heading south...

Veterans for Peace has set up a Katrina relief effort, known as Camp Casey-Covington, in Covington, Louisiana, across Lake Ponchartrain from New Orleans. They are distributing food and other supplies to victims in the region, and they need help. People from all over have been bringing supplies in, and volunteers are sorting and delivering them.

I've been thinking of going down myself, taking supplies and/or other volunteers with me. Anyone out there interested? If you can't go, but are on my way, perhaps you could prepare some "family packs" for delivery. The VFP Hurricane Relief Message Board has lots of information about people offering rides, giving rides, and preparing supplies.

If I go, I'll probably leave this weekend or early next week, and stay a few days. Let me know if you'd like to ride along or provide some family packs! (bob at aapeace dot org)
