"Our volunteers are sorting like crazy," MANNA spokeswoman Melinda Young said Tuesday.

The supplies will go to a shelter in Tallahassee, Fla.This is the first truckload from MANNA to head south, but the organization has been supplying area shelters that are assisting evacuees settling at least temporarily in Western North Carolina.
Young and others said money is still the best way to give.MANNA operates under the umbrella of America's Second Harvest, and Young suggested people donate there.
Spokespeople from area nonprofits have been impressed with individual and corporate giving in response to Katrina.
