I just returned from Waveland, Mississippi where I was helping run the Amateur Radio Emergency Services communication center.
When I wasn't in the comm center, I was helping with food and clothing distribution.
For those of you who want to donate items, I would suggest that you stick to canned goods, cleaning supplies and NEW clothing with the tags still on them.
The distribution centers dont have the manpower to sort used clothes and the used clothing arriving in the areas are being thrown into large piles that may or may not ever get to those that need them
One other item that you might consider sending is heavy laboratory quality rubber gloves. Body recovery is an ongoing issue and FEMA isn't getting the supplies the recovery crews need to them.
I'll be going back to the disaster area in a few days and will try to post some pictures for those interested.
