Today if you woke up in a warm and dry home and had nothing in your cabinets but a few crackers and peanut butter, be thankful you woke up with a roof over your head.
If you woke up still angry at your spouse or your child for some perceived wrong they did to you the day before, be thankful they are still there because in the blink of an eye, they could be gone forever!
So many people during crisis like these believe it is time to clean our grandpa's or their own hoarding stash and send the most disgusting things to these victims and that is just WRONG!!
They don't need our throwaways and if you won't and haven't worn those lime green polyester pants since your disco days, what makes you think anyone else wants to wear them?
If you live close and can get anywhere near these areas and have a local church or your own money, pick up some styrofoam coolers, fill them with ice and deliver them.
Better yet if you can really afford it, purchase a few propane tanks to drop off for cook stoves and heaters, etc.. These things cannot be mailed!
Metal throw away pans, paper plates and cups, juice boxes, bottled water, flash lights, batteries, tarps, bug spray, sun screen, lip balm, feminine products, trash bags, cleaning supplies, etc.
Do not contribute to their disaster by sending boxes of your own trash!
