Now Over 4000 Katrina Survivors in Our Area

The number of Hurricane Katrina survivors in the Washington region has tripled since Friday, swelling to more than 4,000 through a steady flow of displaced people, according to Red Cross and local officials.

The Washington Post runs an article on Katrina Evacuees in the Washington-Baltimore Corridor (free registration required).

However, the DC Govt has announced that they are no longer accepting volunteers (they received over 10,000 requests to volunteer) at the Armory and they have all the donations they need!

So our focus continues to be on our friends down South though we are always open to better ways to connect with local evacuees.
