Local Help for New Orleans

As my friend Mike Rosenberg writes in the Bedford Minuteman, there is a group of people from Bedford going down to New Orleans to help out some schools there.  They raised money from Bedford parents to buy 5 pallets worth of books to replenish some school libraries.  Someone also donated gift cards from Office Depot to buy school supplies.

This kind of in-person local support speaks volumes.  Having people from Bedford go down to deliver the goods and work with their counterparts in New Orleans will make it a great experience.  And, this shows the power of what a small team can do.  It's much more effective than what a big government program can do, but it takes initiative to pull it off.  Kudos to all involved!
