Thomasville- The Red Cross says to make sure more supplies don't end up stuck or wasted, the best thing to donate is money. South Georgia chapters have been flooded with donations of food, clothing, and furniture. They say the Salvation Army can better handle those items. The Red Cross can do more with money.

"Most helpful for the Red Cross, I'm going to say monetary donations. We're sending those up to national and national in turn is pouring it into the communities as well as the lump sum assistance that we're able to give to evacuees across the nation," said Melinda Friddell, ARC Thomasville, Executive Director.

The Thomasville Red Cross set up a canteen where Katrina evacuees can shop for free. They are accepting donations of food, baby supplies, health and beauty items, cleaning supplies, and plastic gloves.
