Help Survivors of the Hurricane!

The following is a copy of the flyer handed out at the Town Clock, where Curtis Reliford, President of Brothers Teaching Brothers, is collecting donations for hurricane relief for some people that he knows in Louisiana.
Help Survivors of the Hurricane!

Is there anybody out there?

Who wants to go in with me to fill my van and trailer with goods to help unaided hurricane survivors in Louisiana, where I am from?

There are people who, for whatever reason, have received no aid. I have been communicating with relatives about what the people really need, i.e.

* Toiletries
* Personal Hygiene Items
* Feminine Items
* First Aid Kits
* Flashlights, candles, batteries, matches
* Diapers and baby wipes
* Baby Formula
* Children's clothing
* Socks and shoes
* Blankets, pillows
* Lotion, Vaseline and shampoo
* Aspirins, etc.
* Rain Gear, rubber boots (the rainy season starts next month)
* Help with GAS money to get there and back

If we could get sufficient quantities of these items, it would be enough to adequately aid several families.

Please drop off all donated items to the town clock: Friday, Saturday, Sunday & Monday, Sept 9th- 12th from 8am to 7pm.

I will be leaving on Wed., Sept 14th for Louisiana. If there is anyone who wants to convoy please contact me.

I am Curtis Reliford, President, Brothers Teaching Brothers -- Santa Cruz resident for 20 years, Community volunteer. Organizer for the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day March for the last 3 years.

I can be reached 24/7 at (831) 246-4240, in Louisiana at (318) 227-1176.
