OCEANA — Goodsons’ Supermarket has a large toolbox, located by the office, for patrons to donate money to the American Red Cross relief effort for victims of Hurricane Katrina.

The toolbox serves as a reminder that “we are giving to help rebuild homes and lives,” explained Ruth Goodson.

Additionally, the store hosted a hot dog/hamburger sale last week, with all proceeds going to the American Red Cross.

“Our county has suffered some of the same flooding, loss of homes, jobs, way of life,” Goodson emphasized. “We also know that with lots of helping hands, prayer and money, recovery is possible.”

Wyoming County suffered a devastating flood July 8, 2001 — at the time it was the worst flooding disaster in state history. Hundreds were left homeless; the recovery effort took more than a year.

“Of course, people in Wyoming County want to extend that same hope and help to those suffering so badly from this hurricane. They are a generous people,” Goodson said.
