BENEFITING: The St Bernard Project Inc
It has been 8 - yes, eight - years since Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans and the surrounding areas, displacing thousands of families and destroying homes, businesses, and communities. For many, life has still not returned to normal, and many of those who were displaced 8 years ago have not yet been able to return home. Four years ago, I went on an Alternative Spring Break to New Orleans, and was introduced to The St. Bernard Project - a phenomenal organization dedicated to bringing families back to their communities, and back to their homes. Ever since that first trip my freshman year, I have been committed to SBP, donating not just my time but also much-needed funds for the tools and materials required to bring home the people of New Orleans. I have seen The St. Bernard Project grow as an organization, and I have seen New Orleans come back to life through my rebuilding missions with SBP. This cause is something I am incredible passionate about, and I hope you will help me reach my goal so we can bring even more families home to New Orleans.
