The Deepwater Horizon oil spill continues to gush into the Gulf Coast, killing sea creatures and wildlife and damaging the area.
Last week we wrote about how you should keep up with what lawmakers are doing to remedy the situation. You should also write your representatives and senators, and local lawmakers as well.
Last week, the Gulf Coast Relief Telethon raised more than $1.8 million to repair the coast.
You can call the Deepwater Horizon Response Volunteer Request Line at 1-866-448-5816.
There are two websites for people who want to volunteer in Louisiana — Louisiana Gulf Response Volunteer Program and Volunteer Louisiana. In Mississippi try Volunteer Mississippi. There’s also a Volunteer Florida and a Serve Alabama.
There are lots of environmental groups and organizations that welcome donations for their efforts on the coast. Please be careful when making donations. Make sure that the organization you pick is legitimate.
