  •  um, anyone know about (none)
    Second Harvest?
    http://www.secondharvest.org/default2.asp

    I'd prefer someone other than Red Cross or Salvation Army

      I checked them and added them to the list.  Their focus is food relief, and specifically backfilling devastated food banks in affected areas.  The BBB website rated them decently.

      Check out Give.org and go to 'Charity Reports' if you want to read what I read.

    •  I've supported Second Harvest for years (none)
      They are an excellent organization which does a very good job of supplying lots of quality food for people at a very low cost.

      If you don't like the Red Cross -- and I'm kind of with you on that -- Second Harvest is a very good alternative.

    •  Bendygirl--are you okay with a religious group? (none)
      By which I mean a group other than those two.

      Here's my plug for Episcopal Relief and Development.

      They will let you designate your donation as being for Katrina disaster relief.

      Go to Episcopal Relief and Development  They are very good about sticking with projects long term and are focused on housing the poor right now.  Their main efforts at this moment are aimed at Mississipi.

      Also, OT, please post some info on DC4D's vote on the ANSWER march endorsement issue.
