Ways to help

People wanting to help in the relief effort for victims of Hurricane Katrina can contact the following:
Tracy Lawrence. "I work for IAP Worldwide Services in Irmo SC. We do disaster relief. We are working under a contract with FEMA. Our company is working 24/7. I happen to be at home but still thinking about what I can do to help. We have trucks full of ice sitting at several bases and we are in need of fuel tankers to keep the reefers cold. I do not know how much fuel we need or at which locations at the moment, but we are situated at three different locations right now. Camp Beauregard, Shelby Air Force base, and Maxwell Air Force Base. Anyone out there that hauls fuel in Alabama, Tennessee, Mississippi, Louisiana, or Texas contact us. We have at least 40 million pounds of ice to move and lots more to come.
