Donation site for oil spill

The Ritz-Carlton in downtown New Orleans is accepting donations of nylons, hair and fur on behalf of Matter of Trust (www.matteroftrust.org) to create booms to combat oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. The hotel is currently the only donation location in New Orleans and one of only nine locations along the Gulf Coast. Help us with a PSA, an on-camera interview or a mention.

Donations can be dropped off at the entrance to the hotel at 921 Canal Street and will then be transported to the warehouse parking garage behind the hotel. Ritz-Carlton employees will work in teams to create booms by stuffing nylons with donated hair and fur. To find out more and see how the booms are made: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EwQOD_Ir2vQ.

Spa Director Daisye Suduran has been collecting nylons for the past six months and is spearheading this effort. The contact with Matters of Trust is Lisa Gautier, who can be reached at 415-235-2403 or team@matteroftrust.org.
