Donate directly to Katrina victims

My friends Tara and Goober in Atlanta sent this email.

My wife Tara and I along with another couple (Denny and Lauren) are sponsoring/adopting a group of 15 evacuees from the same church/community in New Orleans. Denny and Lauren were kind enough to take their 4,000 square foot house for sale in Norcross off the market and allow the group to stay there for the next 2 months rent free. They are also trading in an RV to purchase a vehicle for the families to use in their job search and then to attend those jobs. Our goal is to keep them in the house as expense free as possible for as long as possible (hopefully at least for the next 4-6 months) and to help them find employment. We are asking for any help we can get in the form of monetary or gift certificate donations. We mostly need help paying for the utilities, additional months rent and on going necessities. We have already received many furniture, clothing and food donations, however, we do still need a little help furnishing the house and keeping them with food and necessities. For more info on and pictures of the group, a list of items donated and needed, descriptions of their clothing sizes and a list of contributors please visit

Any monetary donations can be made by check, money order, cash or thru the pay pal account on the website. Checks and money orders can be made payable to Adventure League, Inc. and sent to 3051 Highland Drive, Smyrna, GA 30080. We also have a tax deductible nonprofit (501c) organization (The Children's Fund at a place that will donate 100% back to the families. If you are interested in donating thru The Children's Fund please contact me for instructions. Also, if you know of any job opportunities in the Metro Atlanta area please let us know. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me by e-mail or phone (w)404-846-5049, (c)404-798-2808. Thank you in advance for all the responses and support.
