My friend Todd Sousa who on Saturday led a convoy of relief trucks into the recovery area from Orange County, California checked in from New Orleans this evening, and told the audience about the Pastors Resource Council of Baton Rouge which is organizing the distribution of the masive influx of aid into that part of the disaster area. The Council’s number is 888-966-6600.
The area needs everything but used clothes –they have too many used clothes. Everyone else with relief supplies, come on down. Call from the road or before you leave to let them know what is en route, but the need is epic, and everything that comes in gets turned around and goes out asap to the distribution network of churches.
Over at ReliefConnections.org the first appeal for aid has been received, from Walnut Valley Vineyard Church, which is collecting relief material on behalf of Baton Rouge Vineyard Christian Fellowship. Please urge other groups in need of assistance to post those needs so that efficient linking of supplies and need occurs.
