hey kim--you are such a sweetheart. we don't have a costco but do have a sams. however, i am not a member. i think they aren't answering the phones because they are absolutely slammed. it is pretty close to one of the big churchs that is hosting evacuees so you can imagine the chaos.

mostly what i hear local officials saying is that they need water, gatorade, ready to eat stuff like granola bars, protein bars, etc. as well as cots, toothbrushes, etc. just to keep the ermergency workers going. i dropped off a load of stuff last night after my adventures chez target.

sorry for the long rambling comment...i can't get gmail right now there is some glitch. and don't forget to let people know that in another week or two when the outpouring of donations dies down we'll still need then evacuees will be more settled or have a better idea of where they'll be, their kids will be in school (yay! they really could use some normalcy), and i think there will be a call for help with school supplies, uniforms, you name it.
