Rebuilding Homes in New Orleans

Hi!

We are a group of ten students from the Mary Lyon Pilot High School - a Boston Public School. We are taking a trip to New Orleans from May 16th - 23rd. Our mission is to rebuild homes for the people who lost their homes in the tragic hurricane Katrina. Even though its been 9 years, many people are still homeless to this day. We will work with the St. Bernard Project to rebuild new houses with our own hands.  

We want to go to New Orleans because...

" I want to give them back what  they loved and was close to their hearts." - Sube

" I want to help them because I don't want them to feel alone and I want them to feel that there are so many people that care about them." - Fatima

"This country gave me a home, and the best way to show that I am thankful is to help give others a home."
-Gustavo

"I want to give people back a home where they can create memories with their families." - Jose

"I want to see a big smile on their faces!" - Ashley

  As a group we are working hard to reach our fundraising goal. In order to make it, we need your help and support to change lives.
