Hurricane aid volunteers request fuel tank

By | January 01, 2006
Waveland, Miss., was nearly demolished after Hurricane Katrina. The Citizen Action Team (www.citizenactionteam.org) approached the National Biodiesel Board (NBB) asking for help with fuel so it would be able to keep Waveland's community-based kitchens and community centers open for storm victims. Thanks to the support of donors, including American Bio-Fuels, operations were able to continue. However, although many resources are now secured, the Citizen Action Team needs a biodiesel storage tank before fuel can be donated to them.

Please contact Amber Pearson at the NBB offices if you have information on how the volunteers could acquire a tank or additional biodiesel fuel. She can be reached at apearson@biodiesel.org or (573) 635-3893.

American Bio-Fuels donated significant funds to help pay for meals and other relief. American Bio-fuels is an NBB member and biodiesel manufacturer in Bonita, Calif. Biodiesel advocate Josh Tickell, author of From the Fryer to the Fuel Tank and New Orleans-area native, has also been providing assistance with hurricane aid.

Citizen Action Team is an unaffiliated group of volunteers that has come together to provide supplies to the areas of the hurricane-ravaged coastline. Volunteers serve other areas that receive less media attention than New Orleans, such as Lafayette and Baton Rouge, La., and Gulfport and Hattiesburg, Miss.
