Not a wild idea Tom has at all. Here in Massachusetts, individuals are
trying to help. One working at a health food store is sending protein powder
directly. I had thoughts about this I wrote yesterday I quote myself as

Brett Favre, quarterback of Green Bay Packers football team, native of the
storm area, spoke yesterday saying even more urgent than food was need for
generators to produce AC electricity. 110 degrees at night is too much to
ask weak children sick or elderly to take.

If it were me trying to help directly, I'd call a clinic in the greater storm
area, ask what delivery method is most likely to come through for them, ask
who their medical supply company is, and pay directly for a big box of I.V.
fluid. As a second choice, join with others to pay for a generator and have
it delivered to an aging association in the storm area least likely to get
power back online soon. I'd be willing to kick in a few bucks if someone
wanted to get the ball rolling on this. I do know people escaped from the
storm to Houston who could advise about clinics, associations, etc.

If anyone would like me to call refugees from New Orleans now in Houston to
inquire where something could be sent [like an elderly affairs organization]
I will make the call, if asked.
