Hurricane relief collection at Calontir's Autumn Arrows

Peregrine Fairchylde, coordinator of the Gleann Abhann Supply Run, which is delivering nonperishable necessities to SCA victims of Hurricane Katrina, will be attending Autumn Arrows at the Shire of Calanais Nuadh and invites the gentles planning to join him there to bring supplies that he will haul back to Gleann Abhann for distribution.

What is needed includes bottled water, nonperhishable foodstuffs, hygiene supplies, and school supplies. Please pack any donated items into cardboard boxes or, if you can part with them, tubbies, as they will be carried back on an open trailer.

Gentles who do not have any such supplies to donate may instead purchase a gift card to stores like Wal-Mart, Home Depot, Lowe's or gas stations like BP or Exxon and bring it. They will either be used to purchase supplies closer to the affected area, or fuel the delivery drivers, or given to the people who have lost much or all of their belongings to help them recover.

Any questions about the Supply Run effort can be directed to Peregrine at squirrelhenge@yahoo.com.
