Besides Katrina-devastated Biloxi and New Orleans, volunteers also are needed to assist victims of Hurricane Rita in eastern Texas, western Louisiana, and areas south and west of New Orleans.
More than 52,000 homes were damaged by Rita, according to Dave Buss, disaster relief coordinator for the LCMS Southern District.
Those affected by Hurricane Rita are “the most neglected of all hurricane victims from 2005,” according to Buss.
To volunteer, contact Buss at (225) 205-1639 (email@example.com) or Bernard Scrogin, coordinator for Texas with Lutheran Social Services Disaster Response, at (409) 886-3879 (firstname.lastname@example.org).
