Here are a few people who are making a difference in New Orleans. Give them your money:
- Lutheran World Relief/Lutheran Disaster Relief
- Catholic Charities
- American Red Cross
- Episcopal Relief and Development
At risk of offering an apologia pro domo mea, those of us who were close to 9/11 have had a chance to be impressed by Lutheran Disaster Relief's commitment to long-term service in downtown Manhattan. They stayed (and are staying) long after most of the other agencies took off.
