Please Note: The D.C. Government is asking people not to show up at the Armory with donations for the evacuees expected to come here from New Orleans and other states. Spokeswoman Jo'Ellen Countee says they don't have time to sort through individual donations there.
Countee says the city is trying to coordinate all donations and volunteers through the mayor's call center at 202-727-1000. That's also where you should call if you're willing to offer housing to an evacuee.
