Hurricane Katrina Aid Request

My name is David M. Chavers, and I am the Director of Choirs for  the Pass Christian Public School District of Harrison Co., Mississippi.  Our  district suffered almost complete destruction by Katrina.  Three of the four campuses in our district have been deemed unusable or totally destroyed.  The choir, musical theater, drama and instrumental music programs lost every piece of equipment, instrument, script and octavo.

I am currently attempting to explore every avenue of aid for the coastal schools, most of whom are as badly damaged as we are.  Do you have tips, grants and advice on how our booster clubs and schools may apply for assistance?  If so, please contact me via email, telephone, or at my temporary postal address.  I can be reached at:

5791 Ryals St.
Satsuma, AL 36572
(228) 669-4745 (Cell)
(251) 675-1806 (Temporary Housing)

The Mississippi coastal choirs website is at:

There, we are gathering information from our area groups that have been affected, and you'll see a "Katrina Aftermath" report. In addition, there's a contact form for people who are interested in helping us.

Thank you so much for your assistance.
