Volunteering in Houston

This week, the proprietors of Quite Right helped at the convention center in Houston, where a few thousand of the evacuees from the New Orleans area have been sheltered. The evacuees need help, and we were happy to be a part of the huge volunteer effort in Houston to help them.

Volunteering has been a rewarding experience. We met a few of the evacuees as part of our volunteer work. The evacuees we met are good people in hard circumstances. Some of them have already been placed in longer term housing. (The shelter facilities are good, but they are only a temporary measure. People need better living arrangements, and the evacuees are being helped in finding apartments in the area.)

Quite Right encourages everyone to help in whatever way they can.
