Over Spring Break this past year, twelve of us from the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, MA worked with St. Bernard's Project (SBP) chipping lead paint off of a house in the Upper Ninth Ward of New Orleans, LA. The woman whose house we worked on was stranded on her roof with her mother for two days before they were rescued. After losing everything, she then became a victim of contractor fraud. This past year, SBP has worked with her every step of the way to finally bring her home. We are thankful to have played a role in this process.
About St. Bernard's Project: SBP was founded in 2006 after Hurricane Katrina, and has continued to help rebuild New Orleans. August 29th marks the tenth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, yet there is still so much devastation in the area. Please donate any amount you can, as every little bit helps! Thank you!
