Coaches Unite To Help Victims

With Hurricane Katrina wreaking havoc on the Gulf Coast, Americans are stepping up in record number to assist those in need. Coaches across the country are uniting to do what they can to lend a hand.

Seth Greenberg, the chairman of "Coaches Across America Care" needs your help. The head man at Virginia Tech is spearheading an effort to unite coaches from all levels, in all sports to step up and lend a hand.

"This is something that all coaches, male and female at every level must get involved with," Greenberg, who is heading up the effort among coaches, said. "As coaches we always talk about the team concept. If we are going to make any impact on the hurricane relief efforts, we need to come up together as a team to assist all those who desperately need our help." and coaches from all across America have teamed up to raise money for the victims of Hurricane Katrina. A major online sports auction will highlight the effort, with 100% of the proceeds going directly to Habitat For Humanity, a non-profit organization that builds homes for low-income families.
