Get Off Your Fat, A/C'd Ass And Volunteer

Relatively well-off after Ike?

Feel like helping those who aren't? Then the life of a disaster-relief worker is for you! See exotic PODs! Hand out wonderful MREs!

Here's the info from the county emergency-management office:

Volunteers are urgently needed to assist with Hurricane Ike relief efforts.

Individuals who are interested in volunteering can assist at various locations throughout Houston and Harris County, including the Points of Distribution Centers (PODs) and area non-profit agencies and shelters.

To volunteer or for more information, please call the volunteer line at 713.853.8802 between the hours of 9:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. Non-profit agencies needing volunteers may also call the volunteer line with their requests.

Do your part to tell Ike to shove it!
