One of the very easiest ways to give to the victims of Hurricane
Katrina is to make small donations a part of your daily routine.
Opportunities abound as area stores set up collection areas right next
to their cash registers.

that $1, $2, and $5 denominations are available, but only the $1
coupons are in evidence. Never mind, rip off one – or a handful – with
the purchase of coffee, lunch, or a
newspaper. All proceeds go the Red Cross.

American Red Cross and American’s Second Harvest.
