What Should I Put in a Pet Care Package?

A little background---I volunteer at an animal rescue a couple towns over from where I live, I am very involved in the shelter. We are a small group of 5 women that do everything up there. Anyways, our director, is going down to Louisiana for the third time to do search and rescue for animals from hurricane Katrina. I know the volunteers doing search and rescue are in dire need of water, supplies, etc. I am going to send down a box of cat treats, a box of dog treats and some homemade cookies (which I will label with the ingredients incase anyone has allergies), I'd like to send dog/cat food, but it will be too expensive to ship down there.

I would also like to send a box of personal supplies that they may need. I'm looking for suggestions of what to put in the box! I'm thinking things like band-aids, soap, hand sanitizer, etc---but I'm sure there has to be some other things I can include. Any ideas?
