  • Donation of goods..

    This was posted on another board I go to:

    If you would like to send anything to the dome for the refugees, here is the address. They have set up a zip code just for the Astrodome/Arena/Reliant Center so that people can get items.

    You can send it addressed (general delvery) or to a specific person if you know they are there or you can address it to " children" "nursing mothers" "fathers" etc etc.and they will get those items to whomever you have addressed them to.

    Address is:
    General Delivery ( or put name of person/group etc)
    Houston, Texas 77230

    A responder noted that they are in huge need of socks and underwear for all ages.

    You can send it addressed (general delvery) or to a specific person if you know they are there, or you can address it to a group of people:

    Suggested Group Names:

    * Refugee Pregnant and Nursing Mothers
    * Refugee Men
    * Refugee Women
    * Refugee Babies/Children
    * Refugee School age Children
    * Refugee Elderly
    (includes diabetic testing supplies, vitamins, adult nutritional supplement, depends, canes, walkers, etc)
    * FOR REFUGEE USE: Baby Formula and Baby Foods
    (Formula must be NEW, UNOPENED, and UNEXPIRED. Plastic Bottles/Nipples MUST be included. Pacifiers/soothies also needed. NO GLASS CONTAINERS. This includes baby food. Gerber makes a plastic food container. PEDIALYTE NEEDED BADLY)
    * FOR REFUGEE USE: MEDICAL SUPPLIES ENCLOSED (Send only NEW and Unexpired Supplies)
    * Refugee Children: TOYS/ART SUPPLIES ENCLOSED

    The postal service will get those items to whomever you have addressed them to.

    Address is:
    General Delivery (or put name of person/group etc)
    Houston, Texas 77230




    Not sure if it is true or not (neither was the person who posted it); anyone hear about this??

      NNL - can you keep us posted on whether they are accepting mailed in goods. We don't have much going on in MT yet and I'm looking to help. We did do a water call, which was loaded onto a Ntl Guard helicpoter which was going to fly down and drop off. I'm antsy to help!

          We maybe getting some evacuees here also. We opened up our universities to any students that wanted to continue this semester, and they are looking at our closed down military base to see how quickly it could be brought up to speed to help people.
