(KSL News) -- Since the evacuees landed here in Utah, there has been a generous outpouring of donations -- almost too generous!

Officials at the American Red Cross are asking Utahans to pause in their efforts to help the evacuees of Camp Williams.

Officials say they have more than enough resources to meet the needs of the 600 evacuees at Camp Williams. The past couple of days have brought an overwhelming repsonse. So overwhelming, in fact, that shipments are being directed elsewhere.

Mariann Geyer, CEO American Red Cross: "I think we just need to pause with everyone's generosity, take stock of everything that is there, make sure everything is being utilized by our guests at Camp Williams, and kind of stay tuned."

And, this afternoon the Katrina Hotline stopped taking calls for now.

Mariann Geyer, CEO American Red Cross: "As needs arise we will make sure everybody knows the particular need, but right now, because everyone has been so generous, lots of things are being taken care of."

Financial contributions, however, are always helpful and can be made to the United Way, Red Cross, or a number of other organizations.
