Much of the area around the town of Necaise in North Hancock County, Mississippi still looks like a war zone. This is one of the areas that was devastated by Hurricane Katrina last year. As the money from federal relief efforts in the area begins to dwindle, families are turning to other sources for aid. The North Hancock Recovery Center is in desperate need of warm blankets and other household goods, for the 250 to 300 families that visit their facility daily. Working with the Lion Brand Yarn Company newsletter, asking for warm blankets and other household necessities. So far the facility has recevied about 250 boxes of blankets and other supplies. Last Friday the local UPS man in Necaise delivered 41 boxes of hand knitted and crocheted blankets to the recovery center, along with other essential household goods, that had been generously donated by readers of the Lion Brand Newsletter.

With no other relief facility within 40 miles of Necaise, the North Hancock Recovery Center has become an essential resource for families in the region. "For many families in the area, money from federal relief checks has run out." said Gay Ladner, a volunteer at the recovery center. "There are few jobs in the area, and most of the donation we are getting now are from churches, international aid services and companies like Lion Brand Yarn."

Hancock County residents are also looking for volunteers to help them rebuild. There are not enough carpenters, plumbers or electricians in the area to fulfill the demand. Many families still live in tents. Some live in RV trailers supplied by FEMA that have beds, but no queen size sheets to fit them. Blankets and warm clothing are also still in short supply. The North Hancock Recovery Center would like to encourage concerned individuals, corporation and organization to make donations or volunteer to assist the residents of Hancock County, Mississippi by contacting Gay Ladner at 1-228-234-8899.
