If you are interested in helping with hurricane recovery work in Louisiana, St. Bernard Parish still needs your help. We are a group of volunteers currently working at Camp Premier in St. Bernard Parish, which was one of the areas most heavily affected by the hurricane in Louisiana. We are witnessing firsthand that entire neighborhoods are still completely devastated eight months after Hurricane Katrina. In fact, the St. Bernard Parish Department of Recovery estimates that it may take up to ten years for everything to return to normal. There are hundreds of volunteers already here working to help out, but there are not nearly enough people for the amount of work that needs to be done. If you want to get involved, leave a comment and we'll let you know how you can help out!
Also, if you know of anyone or a group that might be interested in this opportunity, please send them our way! We need as much help as we can get. Also, we're going to keep a blog of what it's like to be a volunteer in St. Bernard Parish.
