Former UF qb and Heisman winner Danny Wuerffel got through Katrina just fine, leaving his post at Desire Street Ministries for his family's home in Fort Walton Beach, Florida. His house in New Orleans and the Desire Street Ministries building, where he runs an outreach program for families in the poorest neighborhoods like the submerged Ninth Ward, is not: the levee breach primarily responsible for the flooding happened across the street from Wuerffel's house. Wuerffel has asked for donations to Desire Street Ministries in the wake of the chaos. Follow this link for donations.
WUERFFEL FINE AFTER KATRINA; DESIRE STREET, NOT SO MUCH
