Re: Katrina Relief Fund

To mobilize a relief effort quickly takes a lot of people willing to do a small amount. One of our first steps is to place a couple hundred collection containers in businesses and places of employment island wide. One person per location should be responsible for depositing the funds collected into the KATRINA RELIEF FUND at the Tongass Federal Credit Union. This effort places a calling on the hearts of potential givers as they shop and go about their daily lives over the next three weeks. The attached KATRINA RELIEF FUND poster can be emailed &/or copied off and then taped to the front of collection jars. Please make this opportunity available to your employees or members and designate a person for collections & deposits.

Secondly: Consider if your business or organization can contribute in some special way over the next three weeks.

Third: Please share KETCHIKAN KATRINA RELIEF EFFORT - THE PLAN - with your employees/members. The City of Ketchikan has graciously provided the Ted Ferry Civic Center for a culmination event on Saturday, Sept. 24, 2005 from 6-10 PM. Dixieland Jazz - Southern Gospel & Big Band music along with a potluck food fair will culminate our community's 3 week fund raising efforts. Please consider purchasing blocks of tickets at $25 each for this evening of music, food, prayer, testimony and celebration.

Thanks for whatever and however you can support this effort.
