Donations for FEMA homes

September 13, 2005

Thomasville-- The goal of the "Thomasville Katrina Project" is to stock mobile homes FEMA will give to victims of Hurricane Katrina with seven cases of household goods.

By pre-packing each home before shipment, there won't be any additional freight costs. Volunteer, Maggie Clifton, says she's helping because she wants to be proactive. "I was tired of sitting in front of my television watching all of the sadness and not doing anything, and wanted to do something however small. And it has just become a bigger part than I realized," she says.

Volunteers also want donors to include a note of encouragement to the family who will receive the mobile home. They're scheduled to be delivered at the beginning of October.
