Students and Teachers care and send quilts. 

Our quilts provide some warmth, but these folks need housing, still.

Dear Plenty Friends,
 
A new 11 minute video by Plenty International, an expanded version of the interviews we did for Robert Greenwald's Brave New Foundation's, Katrina 2nd Anniversary video, features four Katrina Survivors ( Vernon Washington, Rudy Aguilar, Linda Audibert and Melverleane Gaines) who are still waiting for help promised by Federal and State governments through the "Road Home" program to get out of their cramped and toxic FEMA trailers and back into their homes. All four live in the Lower 9th Ward of New Orleans or the town of Arabi in the adjacent St. Bernard Parish. All four are among the folks Plenty has been assisting within the limits of our funding and available skilled volunteers. Their stories are heart-breaking but their resolute spirit and determination are inspiring and it's appalling to realize that there are tens of thousands more just like them. These are voices that deserve a national microphone. The video can be viewed here:

If Road Home were to come through for these people we could have all of them back in their homes before year end. Three of the four families could be out of their trailers and back in their homes for a total of less than $20,000. As Rudy Aguilar points out it cost FEMA more than twice that to buy, ship and set up just one trailer.
