HURRICANE KATRINA / The Aftermath

The weekend of August 27 and 28 will surely go down in American history as being one of the most devastating events of our time.

Just 30 days ago, 20,000 AAU members and their families were in the beautiful city of New Orleans, LA., participating in sports, enjoying the sites and sounds, and for many, spending their family vacation while participating in the AAU Junior Olympic Games. Now, we look at New Orleans, Southern Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and other areas as LOCATIONS IN NEED.

HOW CAN ATHLETES, COACHES, VOLUNTEERS, FAMILIES & FRIENDS OF THE AAU HELP?

The AAU family extends thoughts and prayers to each of the people affected by this tragedy. We are hoping for a speedy and reasonable recovery from this act of devastation.

The AAU encourages the AAU Family to contribute to “a recognized charity of your choice.” This will help your contributions to be expedited to the appropriate areas.

May your actions help those in need.
