If you live in Orange County, there are two places where you can drop off supplies for the Hurricane Katrina relief effort.
First, Hurricanekatrinakidsrelief is accepting donations of bulk supplies on Saturday afternoon. Especially needed are diapers, wipe, formula, (baby supplies), bottled water, and other items for children between ages 0 and 12 (no perishable food). These items need to be in bulk. Drop-off locations are:
Woodbridge High School parking lot in Irvine, Saturday, September 10th, 1pm – 5pm (2 Meadowbrook, off Alton just east of Barranca).
MailBizPlus (23016 Lake Forest Dr, Suite A, Laguna Hills; just south of the 5-Freeway) is conducting a separate drive. Supplies (and these do not have to be bulk) can be dropped off at their store and they will pack and ship them. Donations are also being accepted at the store. Baby supplies, blankets, sheets, towels, batteries, flashlights, toiletries, stationary supplies, undergarments, and shoes are among the requested items.
If you live outside of Orange County, I’m sure there are similar drives happening in your community. If not, think about donating to the Salvation Army.
