As a part of our upcoming trip to New Orleans we will be assembling disaster preparedness kits for the New Orleans Chapter of the American Red Cross. While these kits won't be able to directly help the survivors of Hurricane Katrina, they will help replenish the Red Cross' supplies for future survivors of disasters. These kits will include such basic necessities as toothbrushes, toothpaste, shampoo/body wash, hand sanitizers, small flashlight (with batteries), bottled water, anti-bacterial wipes, combs, cereal bars, rain ponchos, whistles, etc. A good guide for what to donate can be found here: Emergency Preparedness Kit. Donations are being collected in bins in the front lobby of the school and at the upcoming "Rock Stock" concert in the gym. Thank you for whatever donation you can make.
