Med students return to help

Posted on June 30th, 2010 in New Orleans, Relief Work by onsite

The last week in March we had Ohio students from Wright State University Boonshoft School of Medicine come help us out. This year the school organized over 50 students with the help and inspiration of 4 volunteers from 2009. Thanks again to Sonia, Dan, Meagan and Casey for making this year a success.

Texas A&M volunteers

Texas A&M sent us a wonderful group of volunteers and with their help we were able to complete the painting on our first home for 2010. It can cost as much as $10,000 to paint a home in New Orleans so our volunteers are giving a gift that these families would never be able to afford. One homeowner said that it was the best gift anyone had ever given him. That one testimonial reinforces that we’re doing something special in this city.

We continued painting the second week in March. It rained one day so we showed our volunteers how to make beignets. They loved them.

University of Michigan returns to help

Posted on June 29th, 2010 in New Orleans, Relief Work by onsite

We had a wonderful group of students come volunteer the last week of February from University of Michigan. We found it so amazing how the members of this group didn’t know each other before their trip and were singing “kum bay ya” by the end of it. Maybe it was the mojo? Hope to see you next year!
