Helping a Local Katrina Evacuee Family

Hi, everybody.
Just went and delivered the $250 Walmart card to Trinell Goodlee and her two kids, who stayed in a number of shelters In Louisiana for 15 days, before finally coming up to Maryland. They are living in Odenton temporarily.

Trinell told me how horrible the shelters were, how scary and how one had an entire section of a warehouse labeled "lost kids." Apparently, rescue teams took children but not their parents out of the Katrina zone.

Trinell is a licensed nurse -- and quite a comedienne, too -- who worked in hospice care before New Orleans got clobbered. She has applied for a job up here, but everyone's asking for references, none of which exist now, because everyone in New Orleans is gone, and the only possible connection Trinell has is cell phone numbers, many of which don't work. If you know of a good nursing job that's available, please email me, and I'll give you her phone number.
Need still very much exists in all of this recovery effort. Thanks for your continuing support, prayers, and involvement. You guys are awesome.

We are working now on planning future trips to Covington, LA. Stay tuned.
