Coast Guard Helps Katrina Victims With Car Wash

Folks lined up to wash cars Friday in one beach community that has seen its share of hurricanes. And this was no ordinary bunch of volunteers for Katrina relief efforts. These guys and gals are from U.S. Coast Guard units at Fort Macon and station Emerald Isle, along with fire and rescue crews from the Crystal Coast town. Many of their fellow "coasties" have already been sent to the Gulf Coast and while they are standing by, many rolled up their sleeves to help victims in another way. Even Emerald Isle mayor Art Schools got busy at the car wash, which had raised more than $3000 in cash and lots of donated goods the Coast Guardsmen and women plan to send South next week.
