September 11th, 2001. Any available community buildings will be converted into shelters.
With thousands of passengers arriving at any minute,
The town is asking for help with... well anything you can do!

(Sung)

Girl 2
Cristal I saw on the news there lookin' for blankets and bedding and maybe some food!

Girl 3
Do you know what they need and how much?

Girl 4
I need something to do,

All Girls
Cuz I can't watch the news anymore

Girl 5
Can I help? Is there something I need to do,
something to keep me from thinking of all the scenes on the toob

Girl 4
I need something to do cuz I can't watch the news

All Girls
No, I can't watch the new anymore.
In the winter from the water in the wind. If a stranger ends up at your door.

Bueala Davis
You get on a horn.

(Spoken)

Hello this is Bueala Davis down at the academy,
and I herd we might be getting some... guests.
Thought I could help whoever is in charge of getting a school organized.
How many passages can we take? Oh well we fit about 400 students --
yes can probably do 600 -- yah or sure 700... if we really hack them in.
When are they commin'? Could be any time now, well I'm glad I phoned!

(Change in Music)

Boy 1
Boy 1
I get a call from Beulah looking for anything 700 people from around the world might need,
so I go down to Shoppers and the manager says to take what I want off the shelves,
toothbrushes, floss, mouthwash, deodorant and I'm back at the school where Beulah says...

Bueala Davis
Ya know those plans probably got some babies on 'em.?

Boy
So I'm back to Shoppers for diapers and were unpacking them when Annette says...

Annette
Ya know those babies will probably gonna be hungry...?

Boy
So I'm back to Shoppers for formula and baby food and when I get back Beulah says...

Bueala Davis
Ya know those planes probably filled with women of child-bear and age...?

Boy
So...

Beulah Davis
So... I'm back to Shoppers to pick up as many pads and tampons as they have!

(Change in Music)

Girl 1
The Baptist Church needs a hand movin' their pews.
Dr. O'Brian down at the pharmacy has agreed to fill any prescriptions.
Oh! and the Lions Club is looking for some toilet paper, if ya have any extra.

Girl 2
Medicine

Girl 3
Toothpaste

Girl 4
Underwear

Girl 5
Aspirin

All Girls
Jackets our kids grew out of last summer.

Girl 1
And down at the station, were taking donations out by the door.

All Girls
Holy Jesus theres more!

Girl 2
It's better than being at home alone wondering whats really happening

Girl 3
Everyones phoning!

Girls 2, 3, 4
Were setting up rooms in the schools...

Girl 5
And crying all afternoon wondering what could be done!

All Guys
What do we need?

Girl 3-
I made a tray of sandwiches

Girl 4
We need 50 more

Girl 3
Sandwiches?

Girl 4
Trays!

All Guys
What do we need?

Guy 2
200 gym mats, is that enough?

Girl 2
Are you telling me, and we'll both know!

All Guys
What do we need?

Girl 3
For the love of God! Stop bringing toilet paper to the Lion's Club!

All Guys
How do you know what you need, when you don't know how many your needing to feed.
When you don't know how many are staying, how long they are staying.
We better start praying the weather stays nice!

(A Musical Round)

Some Girls
In the winter from the water, in the wind
Some Girls
In the winter from the water, in the wind
Some Guys
In the winter from the water, in the wind
Some Guys
In the winter from the water, in the wind

Some Girls
If a stranger ends up sent by fate!

(Spoken)

Girl 2
Are we gonna be ready?

Bueala Davis
We'll we have to be!
