Here’s another part of Texas UMs response to Katrina needs:
Lakeview Conference Center [outside Palestine, TX] will be housing 106 special needs adults starting tomorrow (Saturday). They need twin size sheets and blankets or sleeping bags, towels, all toiletries except toothbrush and toothpaste, Kleenex, and feminine hygiene products. Please bring these items to the district office [at FUMC, Texarkana, TX – 903-794-6231] beginning Tuesday. They also need funding for this project (because FEMA doesn’t help outside of major metropolitan areas), so an account has been set up at Region Bank.
