Cops Collect Furniture for Katrina Evacuees

Police officers at Savannah-Chatham Precinct 6 are calling around the area, asking people to donate furniture to the Salvation Army. It's for Katrina victims who chose to make Savannah their new home.

The community answered the call, and this afternoon, officers went around collecting everything from appliances to house wares, filling an entire U-Haul.

"Our community really came together," said Cpl. Henry Brown.

The Salvation Army will be asking for documentation from FEMA or the Red Cross to make sure recipients are really victims and not scam artists.
