"They treat you very well"

"You just walk in," said Ethel Wicker, 57, who fled the Ninth Ward in New Orleans ahead of the storm that flooded it, as she dug into a Styrofoam container of oriental chicken in the gym of Florida Boulevard Baptist Church. "They have clothing. They have drinks. They have candy. And they treat you very well."

Quote from NYT article entitled "A New Meaning for 'Organized Religion': It Helps the Needy Quickly."  HT to Stephen and the KatrinaGrace blog.
