Katrina hits home

A friend of mine and his family were directly affected by the storm:

My father, George R. Israel, a veteran of the Korean War, a retired railroad employee and now a senior citizen has become a victim of Hurricane Katrina. He lived at 108 Washington St., Bay St. Louis, MS. He had a small home just three houses from the shoreline. The storm destroyed his entire block, leaving only the slabs of the foundations of his and his neighbor's houses. He was only able to save himself and a few items of clothing. My father is now homeless and turning 77 years old this month. He's been retired for some time now and lives on a fixed income, so you can only guess how hard this will be on him.

My wife and I have given him what we believe he needed right away. New clothes, cash, shelter and some pictures of friends and family (the few that we had), but it's nothing compared to what really needs to be done. So far my father is still homeless and without any personal belongings. He has received the $2000 FEMA gave to everyone that was displaced, but I understand since he lost everything and is a senior citizen he is entitled to more.

I am writing to you for just that, my father George R. Israel needs your help. Any and all additional help would be greatly appreciated. I'm his only son and can only do so much, but I am willing to do everything in my power to get my father back on his feet, so he may live out his last few years in peace.

Please let me know how he can apply for cash assistance, financial aid, grants, low interest home loans, and or any other services you handle for Hurricane victims. You can review his los here -

Please, do not let this letter fall through the cracks.
We need HELP!
