Green Bay Packers Quarterback Brett Favre is planning a relief effort for areas hit by the hurricane, and he wants Wisconsinites to join him.
Favre's family lives in Kiln, Mississippi, an area battered by Katrina.
While his family survived, the home he grew up in was destroyed. Now he wants to help others in the area by collecting chainsaws, work gloves and boots, tarps, ropes, and chains.
The items will fill a plane, and on Sunday, it will take off from Madison and land in Mississippi.
Grant Goetsch will pilot the two hour flight. "They have a lot of debris. They're doing best they can to clean up major thoroughfares. I believe lights and power are still out. We have to do it during daytime. I suspect it won't be much different Sunday," he says.
In Madison, you can drop off donated items at Wisconsin Aviation on 3606 Corben Court, just off of Highway 51.
Or, you can make monetary donations to aid hurricane victims through the Brett Favre Fourward Foundation. Visit the website http://www.officialbrettfavre.com/ .
