Wednesday, September 3, 2008 | 12:09 p.m. CDT

ST. LOUIS - Dozens of Goodwill locations in Missouri and Illinois are offering vouchers to allow Hurricane Gustav evacuees to get clothes from their stores.

Beginning immediately through Thursday, people who can show valid identification that they are from New Orleans or other communities affected by the hurricane can qualify for a $30 voucher.

They can receive an additional $10 voucher for each additional family member in need of clothes.

The stores taking part are known as MERSGoodwill stores. They include stores in the western half of Illinois and Goodwills around Missouri, except those in Kansas City and St. Joseph.
