Send items to Survivors in the Astrodome!

Please note, the post below is a copied post from Lynchburg Freecycle group. The word Refugee is the word we have to use for this.

Many of us are looking for a way to help with goods for the refugees of Katrina. If you would like to send anything to the Houston Astrodome/Arena/Reliant Center for the refugees, here is the NEW address. They have set up a zip code just for the Astrodome/Arena/Reliant Center so that people can get donated items.

You can send it addressed (general delvery) or to a specific person if you know they are there, or you can address it to a group of people:

Suggested Group Names:

* Refugee Pregnant and Nursing Mothers
* Refugee Men
* Refugee Women
* Refugee Babies/Children
* Refugee School age Children
* Refugee Elderly (includes diabetic testing supplies, vitamins, adult nutritional supplement, depends, canes, walkers, etc)

* FOR REFUGEE USE: Baby Formula and Baby Foods (Formula must be NEW, UNOPENED, and UNEXPIRED. Plastic Bottles/Nipples MUST be included. Pacifiers/soothies also needed. NO GLASS CONTAINERS. This includes baby food. Gerber makes a plastic food container. PEDIALYTE NEEDED BADLY)

* FOR REFUGEE USE: MEDICAL SUPPLIES ENCLOSED (Send only NEW and Unexpired Supplies)

* Refugee Children: TOYS/ART SUPPLIES ENCLOSED

The postal service will get those items to whomever you have addressed them to.

Address is:
General Delivery (or put name of person/group etc)
Houston, Texas 77230

Thanks mom, that is the clearest way I have seen to get packages in the hands of those who need it. I appreciate you for finding this.

I was tickled to get these instructions. I think it makes a big difference for some people when they know just where their donations are heading.
