LA takes in evacuees

Heard on, of all places, ESPNradio 710AM that one of the big churches in LA has been taking in evacuees from the hurricane. Those efforts are being coordinated out of The Dream Center.

From the interview, it sounds like many of the evacuees who chose Los Angeles don't plan to return to New Orleans and want to start a new life in LA.

SoCalorie of LA Foodblogging gave this on the scene report of the outpouring of support.

From radio reports, donations nationwide are near $500 million.

UPDATE: I just heard on the radio that there will be a job fair at the Dream Center at 10AM today. They say they have 20 employers already and welcome more.
