August 29th, the one-year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina’s landfall, also marks the deadline for homeowners in the New Orleans area to have their homes either demolished by FEMA or gutted by volunteers. Here at New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity , we have been working with the St. Bernard Department of Recovery to remove the internal debris from the flooded homes belonging to the elderly and handicapped. With just 5 weeks remaining, we have over 1100 homes to complete and a very low volunteer turnout. The elderly and handicapped residents of St. Bernard need your help before the end of summer.
To learn more about the project and the urgent need for volunteer support, you can check out this very compelling 5-minute St. Bernard Recovery: Help & Hope documentary
Volunteers are needed urgently. Please help this dying American community recover! Please sign up today!!
