to Bookslut Colleen Mondor writes with news of a very worthy relief effort she's involved in. Support it if you can:
I am working with a group in Baton Rouge who are helping children sheltered with their families at Southern University. We have put together a couple of wish lists of books and games that the folks at Parkview Baptist Church will happily deliver to the SU kids and other area shelter kids.
Colleen will also take direct donations and get them to the right people, so if you want to contact her directly shoot me an email and I'll pass along her contact info.
