Over 300 in Need in Troy

After talking with a couple of Troy University officials, I found out that their best estimate is that Troy has over 300 refugees here. Given that the population of the city is generally estimated at under 15,000, that's a pretty sizable number.

Plans are still sketchy, but since every mid-to-high level administrator on campus was in hurricane related meetings all day today, I think we are swinging into action quickly. I've heard rumors of plans by the local Troy churches, but nothing I can confirm at the moment.

In any case, I'll try to keep the blog updated on opportunities to serve in Troy and Montgomery.

    We are setting up our tent in front of the Alumni House. We are going to gather anything and everything people want to donate. We are doing it for the cal-poly game and the UAB game. Hopefully we can collect a good amount of stuff to pass out to Hurricane Katrina Victims.
