Support for Oil Spill Victims

The Maritime Studies Program of Williams College and Mystic Seaport williams.edu/williamsmystic has been going on field seminars to the Gulf Coast, specifically Cocodrie and Grand Isle, LA, since the fall of 2004.  They have joined forces with a few other non-profits to create New Englanders for the Gulf. http://newenglandersforthegulf.org They are fundraising to provide monies for fisherman who are out of work to buy groceries for their families.  Two WM alumni are currently on Grand Isle to work with officials there and to hand out grocery vouchers to those in need.  Their blog: http://livingwiththespill.blogspot.com/
