Area Support for Katrina Victims

Wiregrass shelters have housed hundreds of evacuees over the past few days and now the Red Cross is asking for support.

Anyone willing to help can contribute money which will be used for food and supplies for the hurricane victims.

Local Red Cross officials say, traditionally, the Wiregrass has been very supportive with donations and volunteer efforts.

Winn Dixie is even contributing nationwide.

Danny Markley, Winn Dixie Manager tells customers, "At the checkout, there's a specific coupon that they're given at the register. They can fill out the amount they want to give on the coupon and then it's rung up.”

All donations through Winn Dixie are given to the Red Cross.
