our hearts and lend a hand to Hurricane Katrina
The needs by the Katrina evacuees
and the stranded are humongous and call for greater attention:
The news says that Arlington's
Elzie Odom Recreation Center has been converted to shelter 125 refugees.
4000 evacuees are expected to be in Tarrant County and 25000 or more are
coming to north Texas.
In the wake of this terrible
disaster, we are certain that MCS and its affiliated families want to show
our passion - We care for those who are less fortunate.

(9/11 and 9/18), MCS PTA staff will set up a collection area near the
