Wal-Mart gives Salvation Army $1 million for Katrina relief

The Salvation Army is launching a massive effort to get food to victims and aid workers:

Currently, The Salvation Army is preparing to serve 400,000 meals per day to victims and first responders. Meals are being loaded onto 72 mobile canteens and two 54-foot mobile kitchens. The mobile feeding units will be dispatched into the most affected areas by FEMA, and will be followed, based on response needs, by other units The Salvation Army has at its disposal - trucks called comfort stations where residents can attend to personal hygiene; portable shower units; emergency response command stations for officers to direct the response efforts; and other equipment as needed.

Wal-Mart has donated one million dollars toward this effort. The Wal-Mart page linked above also contains links where you can donate to disaster relief through the Salvation Army and the American Red Cross.

And please bear in mind, the American Red Cross is NOT the anti-American leftist-sympathizing International Red Cross. The American Red Cross is a quality relief organization.
