Madison Community Responding to Crisis in New Orleans

A group of citizens and clergy from Madison Zion Baptist Church will be sending 5 empty Van Galder buses to the Katrina hurricane stricken area on Tuesday to pick up 40 families and bring them back to Madison, as early as Friday next week. Apartments have already been found for the families, but monetary and other donations are needed to cover the first 2 months of rent and provide basic house ware needs for the families. Money/checks can be taken to the Dane County Credit Union (checks made out to "Katrina Disaster Fund") today by noon. Clothing and house ware contributions can be taken to Mt. Zion Baptist Church, 2019 Fisher St., Madison (the sooner the better).
