9:10 AM — Children's Books for Evacuees
My #1 favorite webcomic
has a message that you can send books (childrens' books especially) to evacuee children at the Astrodome.
c/o RED CROSS
2700 Southwest Freeway
Houston, TX 77098
It's a different street address than I got online, I think because as CNN describes
there are two parts to the complex, the Astrodome, and the Reliant Arena, so perhaps this address is for the other part. I hope mine'll get there. I haven't sent it yet, but I don't think I'll change the address.
Other places care packages could be sent are Huntsville, San Antonio, and Dallas, TX, since the Astrodome is filling up. I don't think I'm ever going to make another Texas joke again.
