BENEFITING: LOVE KNOWS NO BOUNDS
EVENT DATE: Mar 30, 2013
2 Weeks and $4,000 to Go! Make Your Impact Today and Make a Difference for Miss Ruby that Lasts a Lifetime!
Love Knows No Bounds is leading a team of 20 volunteers (including many incredible youth from our community) to continue working on the homes of 2 amazing senior citizens in New Orleans, who are still trying to recover their homes from the wrath of Hurricane Katrina. We leave March 30th and will spend a week installing insulation and sheetrock, laying down tile, painting, planting gardens, and putting up trim.
Please watch the video to the left to hear the story of one of our beloved elders, Miss Ruby Smith, whose deepest dream is to return home to care for her ailing sister, Velma, next door. As you will notice in the video, we were scheduled to work on her home last April. However, Velma suffered a fire in her home just weeks before we arrived, so Ruby asked if we would repair Velma's house instead, which we did. Now, we will be helping Ruby take the next steps toward returning home to be by Velma's side.
We need your help to raise $5,000 ($5,000 less than the number you see in the video, thanks to last year's generous donors!!) for building supplies (sheetrock, insulation, buckets of spackle, paint, flooring tile, lumber, hardware, and other supplies) for the 2 homes we will be working on. Please click on the orange DONATE button at the right of your screen and make the most generous gift you can!
