15_new_orleans Theme: Building Foundations: Constructing confidence and community through Katrina Restoration Service
Description: Under the hot Louisiana sun, Team New Orleans helped make a house into a home with the St. Bernard Project. They worked tirelessly to install flooring and windows, caulk, paint, and complete finishing touches on the home of Ms. Betty, who lost her home 10 years ago during Hurricane Katrina. She was their main motivation as they encouraged each other to persevere. The team also toured the Ninth Ward and witnessed lingering destruction as well as recovery of the city. These mature and reflective students bonded as a family throughout this unforgettable week!
