Local Hurricane Relief Efforts

Sue Beckwith has set up a blog at stlhelps.org to provide information about efforts in St. Louis to help survivors of Hurricane Katrina. You can email news to the site's editors at info@stlhelps.org.

On Saturday, October 15, The Commonspace, Digitronical and Detour Production will host "Breaking for Broken Lives," a breakdancing showcase to raise money for the relief effort. Stay tuned for details.

Mississippi Nights (914 N. 1st Street on the Landing) is running a Hurricane Katrina Music Drive (thanks to Stephanie at Maplehood Rekkids for the tip):

Help us give the gift of music!

For the next 2 weeks, Mississippi Nights will be collecting all of your old CD's and CD Players and donating them to the St. Louis area evacuees of Hurricane Katrina. Until the end of our show on Saturday September 17, stop by our box office and drop them all off. Anyone who brings in 10 CD's in good, working order will receive a coupon good for a free ticket (up to $20) to any of our shows for the rest of 2005. All donations will be distributed to area shelters to be given to the evacuees. Hopefully in this trying time, the gift of music can bring a little bit of happiness to our fellow citizens!!

Clowder House is taking in evacuee kitties. By state law, they are required to keep the cats segregated for ten days, so they need more cages. If you have an extra cage they can borrow that's large enough to hold a litter box, contact them at 3134 Wyoming Street, 314-776-PURR or clowderhouse@juno.com.

State representative Connie "LaJoyce" Johnson (61st district) gave a good rundown of what's being done by the State of Missouri and government-related agencies in her monthly email newsletter.

Apparently, Governor Blunt told local officials that the Welcome Center at Lambert Airport won't be needed as a screening and transitional station for former Gulf Coast residents. The hangar may be repurposed as a drop-in social services center for evacuees.
