Katrina Victims Still Need Help

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,As we prepare to joyfully gather together next month for our 179th Annual Council, I ask all of you to please remember our friends on the Coast that were victims of Hurricane Katrina. Camp Coast Care has some urgent needs and what better time for us to help them with their requests. They will have a booth at Council and will be located in the same room as the St. Andrews Bookstore so they will be in a high traffic area. Jennifer Knight has issued a desperate plea for medical supplies in the form of OTC medications for cough, cold, pain or fever and stomach meds as well as prescription medications such as Z-paks, antihistamines, antihypertensives, steroids, and steroid nasal sprays. Gift cards from Walmart, Home Depot, Lowe's, and Winn Dixie are also a top priority. A complete list of their needs can be found on their web site at www.campcoastcare.com . I urge all Churches in the Diocese to make this announcement at every service this coming Sunday and generously send these items, especially the gift cards, by your delegates to Council and drop them off at their booth. Continue to hold the victims and everyone involved in the relief effort in you thoughts and prayers.
