Absolute Amusements and Roger Holler team up to aid Katrina victims

I didn’t get this message until today, so hopefully it’s not too late to generate some more donations and volunteers.

Dear Friends:

A few hours ago, David Peters of Absolute Amusements called me to request help. He has 5 eighteen wheeler trucks he wants to fill with water and nonperishable food items (not clothing or other supplies – just food) to send to Hurricane Katrina victims. He has already located several businesses he has relationships with who can receive the items and will distribute them in the Gulf Coast.

In a matter of hours, God has answered our prayers by providing a collections location. Roger Holler has generously offered their empty lot at Denning and Fairbanks. On Tuesday and Wednesday, from 7:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., we will be collecting items. David’s team will stack the items on pallets and plastic wrap them. Forklifts will be used to load the trucks. On Thursday or Friday, people in Mississippi and Louisiana will receive the items at distributions centers.

We need your help. Here are our needs:

1. Donations – David has committed that if we collect more than he can haul, he will get more trucks to take the supplies.

2. Please spread the word. You can forward this email to your friends in Winter Park/Orlando and spread the word with everyone you know. We need to move quickly.

3. We really need volunteers to man the collections. We hope to have a traffic flow of cars across the lot that allows for quick entry and exit.

If you can volunteer, please call me at 407-647-1278 or 407-247-6231. I will happliy add you to the schedule.

4. If you have contact with anyone in the media. Please call them. The more exposure we get, hopefully the more we can collect. They are welcome to contact me with any questions. We would love to have a radio station there to broadcast.

Thanks so much.

Jennifer Casebier
