Two Mississippi natives respond: Brete Favre and Steve McNair (I’ll be seeing them both in a pre-season game in about 90 minutes) have arranged a tractor-trailer filled with supplies for hurricane victims in their homestate of Mississippi.
“McNair is offering to swap an autographed photo in exchange for a minimum donation of $100 to his foundation. Those funds will be distributed to victims in rural Mississippi. Meanwhile, Favre’s foundation is shipping supplies to Mississippi via a prop jet donated by Wisconsin Aviation. The foundation’s Web site says Favre’s wife, Deanna, will disperse any money and items donated to the appropriate organizations helping hurricane victims in Mississippi.
