03/26/06: NOLA donations needed!
Jello Biafra just came back from speaking in New Orleans, LA, and is asking everyone to read this list of items needed by his friends at the Women's Center at the Common Ground Collective in New Orleans, LA.

From Ms. Kitty @ the Women's Center:
"It is super super hard to get stuff down here, due to price gouging and the city being half abandoned, so anything you can donate is appreciated. The requested items are separated into light and heavy sections since you need to think ahead since it costs a lot more to ship to NOLA at the moment than normal places. Plus, we do not have mail delivery, Common Ground picks it up from somewhere about every two weeks it seems.

Those items that have been marked with an * are especially needed.
LIGHT items
panties**
socks**
coffee*
creamer
office products
hole punch
cutlery (forks, spoons, etc.)
feminine hygiene products, especially alternative methods such as lunapads or the keeper type cups
crochet hooks and yarn
chocolate**
nail clippers (toe and finger)
toothpaste/toothbrushes
nyquil/dayquil
tylenol and tylenol pm
midol or other menstrual pain reliever
pregnancy tests
AfAm hair care products(perms, doo gro, etc)
children's underclothes

HEAVY items

Miss Kitty Love, Director
