katrina relief mission

My dad just got back from a relief mission to Baton Rouge. The big orgs like the Red Cross get all the press, but so many small organizations are making a big impact down there as well.

“I haven’t had a chance to post for a while since I have spent the last week on a relief mission in Baton Rouge. The United Spinal Association in NYC sent a bus and truck loaded with wheelchairs and other mobility devices to Baton Rouge for people with disabilities who had lost or had their wheelchairs damaged during hurricane Katrina. I went along to do the evaluations, adjust and fit wheelchairs, and help out in any way possible.”
