This is an archived copy of the Long Beach Cares (LongBeachCares.org) website created by Lorenzo Gigliotti in Sept. 2005. Originally designed to raise awareness of the devastation of Hurricane Katrina and aggregate the diverse fundraising and special events which took place in Long Beach California to aid victims of Katrina, it also became the official historical chronicle for the Long Beach Cares - Long Beach, CA Helping Long Beach, MS program established by the City of Long Beach, California (under the direction of Lindsay Shields) to help begin the rebuilding effort of Long Beach, Mississippi. This program ended in Sept. 2006 but to find out more about the continuing needs of Long Beach, MS visit: http://www.cityoflongbeachms.com.   
Note: this archived website's URL is ".net" - www.LongBeachCares.net because the ".org" now serves a new purpose. Dates contained in this archived website refer to 2005 and 2006.
