tributed by major pharmaceutical houses. No attempt has been made to put a price tag on this.

Operation of Resurrection City required an incredible list of supplies, from sewer pipes to toothbrushes, some of it contributed, some purchased at cost, some paid for out of SCLC funds.

OTHER CONTRIBUTIONS

About $2,000 in plumbing hardware was paid for by SCLC, but a Chicago firm decided to contribute 25 $55 water heaters, some of which were found still uncrated when Resurrection City folded. Upon the request of the Union of American Hebrew Congregations, the Metropolitan Electric Company here contributed about $3,000 in electrical supplies.

Like the Smithsonian, a number of groups in Washington, including a separate recreation committee, tried to make life more pleasant for the tent city residents, especially the children. Many of these gave up in frustration.

Like the campaign itself, Washington's contribution is for the most part over. But some of the poor are still staying in churches, and until the campaign is officially wound up, area organizations will continue to help.
