Sunday update on Camp Casey at Covington

Margaret will be at Cafe Mundi today from about 1 pm on to accept donations of supplies and cash. A truck filled with supplies did leave for Covington yesterday (actually I think more than one did). In fact, she thinks that there will be enough supplies to fill two trucks by the end of today, so if you know of anyone who would be willing to drive their truck to Covington, that would be great. But it sounds like they will find a way to get all donated supplies to Covington.

Margaret estimates that with about $200 more, a badly needed generator could be rented for the Covington camp, and all cash donations will be used to buy supplies as needed in Baton Rouge (she says the people in Covington make a supply trip to Baton Rouge about once a day). You can donate by check at Cafe Mundi (see details in post below).

On the other end of the spectrum, if you don't have money to donate or to buy supplies with, Margaret says water is more valuable than anything. If you have empty plastic jugs, you can fill them with tap water--that water can be used for dishwashing and other cleaning, rather than using drinking water for that. Purchased drinking water does not need to be fancy; cheap gallon jugs of drinking water are just as needed.

Please see other posts below for information about supplies that are still needed.

THANKS, EVERYONE!!

[UPDATE]
