Best Local Do-Gooder(s): Carol and Boake Moore, Chelsea Butler, and Stan King

Staff Pick

After the killing waters of Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans and Mississippi, Atlantans reached out to help. Among them were CAROL AND BOAKE MOORE, who welcomed 30 Katrina evacuees into their expansive Roswell home overlooking the Chattahoochee. CHELSEA BUTLER, founded a group called Weekend Atlanta Rescue Effort and took weekend trips to New Orleans to bring evacuees to metro Atlanta and helped them navigate the relief system. And STAN KING, a Marietta retiree-turned-woodworker, drove to Mississippi to collect debris from the storm to build birdhouses. He sells them at $100 a pop and donates the proceeds to help Gulf Coast residents rebuild their homes. The Moores, Butler and King are among hundreds (if not thousands) of Atlantans who share this award.
