After the killing waters of Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans and Mississippi, Atlantans reached out to help. Among them were CAROL AND BOAKE MOORE, who welcomed 30 Katrina evacuees into their expansive Roswell home overlooking the Chattahoochee. CHELSEA BUTLER, founded a group called Weekend Atlanta Rescue Effort and took weekend trips to New Orleans to bring evacuees to metro Atlanta and helped them navigate the relief system. And STAN KING, a Marietta retiree-turned-woodworker, drove to Mississippi to collect debris from the storm to build birdhouses.

Senior proms are awkward, expensive, pretentious affairs. Isn’t there anything better to do with your time and money? That’s what RIVERWOOD HIGH SCHOOL students asked before deciding to forgo the prom and donate prom funds to nonprofit group CARE’s tsunami relief efforts. The local community responded to the school’s gesture with a flood of donations. Nearly $10,000 ultimately was donated to CARE. The school received some donations as well — enough to go ahead with the prom after all.
