Update on Austin donations to Covington

Please see both the diary below this one here on Austin Kos, plus Update on Camp Casey III at Daily Kos.

From the above update, if you are planning to contribute on Sunday:

The most recent list of need from Camp Casey - Covington:

* Diesel fuel [From roses: Do not take diesel fuel to Cafe Mundi, but if you can find new, empty fuel containers, no doubt those could be used.]
* Baby Supplies, Wipes, diapers, lotions, Not MREs
* Water, Water, Water, and Ice maker, purification tablets.
* A big generator! Rent one and put in to a rented trailer. [From roses: This sounds like a big commitment, but perhaps if we can donate enough cash, this could happen.]
* Solar powered Lights! get them at Lowe's or Cosco.
* Hard Candy like lolly pops for the kids.

Do we know if the shipment left as scheduled this evening? I was very impressed with Barbara's dedication and warmth-- what a great opportunity to make a direct and immediate impact.

Here's an update from Margaret last night:

Here is the list you [people at Covington] sent:

ice chests with ice
baby supplies (diapers, formula, ointments)
low fat powdered milk
canned foods
fresh fruit
additional generators
flash lights
portable toilets

[Margaret continues:] We have sent some of everything EXCEPT: fresh fruit, gasoline,
generators and flash lights.

Someone estimated we sent 600 pounds of water with Maia and Darryl.
Who knows?

We are still receiving donations for gas etc and they have been very
generous. Like you wouldn't believe!

Cool! THANKS EVERYONE! Keep it coming if you haven't been over to Cafe Mundi yet. It would be terrific to be able to fund a generator!
