So much tragedy so quickly. Here's something I recently was emailed regarding help. As many of you know, I first met Deaf people and learned ASL in Louisiana. The LA School for the Deaf (LSD) was one of the main places I spent time with Deaf people and learned so much from them.
News of the Week: Hurricane Katrina has impacted all of us badly. AndLouisiana School for the Deaf, in Baton Rouge, is risingto the occasion by opening its doors. The school is housing students, teachers and interpretersthat have lost their homes and have no place to stay. Thisgroup also includes mainstreamed students from New Orleans. These people need clothes, toiletries, linen, schoolsupplies and other items, these provisions not originallybuilt into the school budget. You can do your part to help our friends in needthat are staying at the school - make out your checks,payable to "Louisiana School for the Deaf" and writeon the bottom of the checks "Hurricane Relief." Superintendent Bill Prickett will be setting upa special account at the local bank to handle thesechecks.
