United Way coordinates aid to three Mississippi counties
The United Way of St. Croix County has "adopted" Gulfport, Miss. in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.
According to John Coughlin, executive director of the United Way of St. Croix County, the local non-profit organization decided to focus its relief efforts on one specific disaster area to maximize the impact.
"We'll be able to see where our money and supplies are going," he said.
