Hare Krishnas raising funds for victims

SPANISH FORK — Utah's Hare Krishnas are urging participation in raising funds for Hurricane Katrina victims. The Krishna Temple will donate $1 dollar for every dollar donated, up to $2,000, local Krishna leader Caru Das said.

The group is using its Web site — www.ffl.org — to collect donations for its worldwide Food for Life vegetarian food distribution network that normally distributes 500,000 plates of food a day, Das said in a statement.

Krishnas are now focusing distribution in Mississippi, Alabama and Louisiana.
