Need to Do Something?
Atlanta Humane Society - According to a post I found on Craigslist, the AHS has taken in animals from the hurricane region, as well as pets from evacuees sheltered here in Atlanta. There is a volunteer orientation 10 a.m. tomorrow (9/10) at the shelter at 981 Howell Mill Rd (tel. 404-875-2600).
City of Refuge Local organization providing food and shelter for hurricane refugees.
Travelers Aid of Metropolitan Atlanta This 100-year-old organization provides "emergency services to newcomers, travelers and residents in crisis." They seek cash donations and volunteers.
Charity Navigator provides "grades" for national organizations as to how they allocate their money, so you can find organizations that will use your money most effectively.
