Homes for hurricane refugees
September 6, 2005
The political action group MoveOn has moved into a noble effort. Through their Web site ” http://www.moveon.org ” they are lining up donated space to stay with people who could use a bed now that theirs was blown or flooded away.
The South is the main place where they are looking for homes where the displaced can stay for awhile. But they say they’ve had offers from Chicago and Minnesota. Colorado isn’t so far away, considering that.
MoveOn says 150,000 beds have been offered at hurricanehousing.org and 1,500 thus far have responded to the offers.
If you have room, or say, a second home to spare, you might consider such a donation.
Of course, a lot more is needed. And a place to stay is just the beginning. What about work, living expenses and all that?
But hey, it’s a start.
