Catharine Young

September 01, 2005


Senator Cathy Young today announced constituents can assist the victims of Hurricane Katrina in Alabama, Louisiana and Mississippi by making cash donations to voluntary relief organizations.

According to the federal government, cash donations are the most helpful to victims of Hurricane Katrina in Gulf Coast states because it allows volunteer agencies to issue cash vouchers to victims so they can meet their needs. In addition, cash donations allow agencies to avoid the labor intensive need to store, sort, pack and distribute donated goods, as well as the high costs of shipping donated goods by air or sea.
