Carroll County, Georgia (where I live) was hit hard by tornados spawned by Katrina. Household items, furniture, & clothing are being accepted at the Southwire Resource Center, on South Park Street in Carrollton, GA. Trucks and trailers are waiting to be filled with donations.

Volunteers needed: Go to "Holy Ground Baptist Church" on Hwy. 27 south of Carrollton and check-in at the Carroll County Sheriff desk where you will be given an assignment. Heavy equipment, chainsaws and strong volunteers are greatly appreciated. Those not able to physically assist may bring much needed food and drinks for these working citizens.

Monetary donations should be mailed to:

American Red Cross
Disaster Relief Fund
P.O. Box 101590
Atlanta, GA 30392

NOTE: Checks should be made out to the "American Red Cross" and if you intend for it to be used specifically for our county, write "Disaster Relief Fund for Carroll County" on bottom of check on memo line. You can contact the local coordinator, Daniel Jackson at daniel@Carroll-ga.org

I realize most of you live far way but any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
Gilbert Huey

Gilbert, thanks for your post. We had a couple twisters up here too, but nothing compared to what you all had down your way. Our hearts go out to you all there and to everyone who has been so drastically affected by this hurricane. It's just unbelievable.

Again, I appreciate you posting the relief information... please know that you all are in our thoughts and prayers, and a check is in the mail.
