Goverment's relief efforts were disaster

How we're helping

The acts of kindness in Gwinnett come in all shapes and sizes. Kids stood on a street corner Monday with a sign made of cardboard and Crayola. It read, "Help us Help Them, 1-800-HELP NOW." For those who stopped, the children asked for spare change to help the hurricane victims. Peachtree Ridge High School arranged to have a semi truck at the school Tuesday night. Contributions filled the truck, which will deliver to flood and hurricane-stricken areas. Gwinnett Medical Center has admitted at least 20 patients from the Gulf Coast. Developers have opened vacant rental properties to the homeless. Gwinnett Sheriff Butch Conway and 16 deputies headed to Louisiana to lend a hand. Gwinnett schools are accepting refugee students. The impressive list runs on. Here is a recap of campaigns, drives and other efforts going on within the Daily Post's circulation area:
