Hurricane Help

Featured Videos

Many of our neighbors to the west have been hit hard by Hurricanes Gustav and Ike. We have seen familiar video of trees on houses and flooded homes.

Right after Katrina and even still now we have had thousands of volunteers come to our community to offer a helping hand. Many offered physical labor helping to gut, repair and rebuild our homes. Others offered money thorough church groups or organizations like the Salvation Army or the American Red Cross.

Now it is time for us to return a portion of the generosity offered to us after Katrina. We urge you to find some organization you want to help in the relief effort. If you have the time and are able, volunteer and give a few days of free labor. Also if you can afford to donate money, doit, every little bit can help some group not only deliver supplies but also give hope to these storm victims.

Most all of us can remember what it meant to receive a helping hand after Katrina. Now it's our time to help some of our neighbors as they struggle to recover from the recent storms. We all need to "Pay it forward."    

That's our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to editorials@wlox.com, or post your comments below.
