ASFE Volunteers In New Orleans
May 27, 2010

ASFE/The Geoprofessional Business Association volunteers recently lent a hand in New Orleans. The volunteers helped to demolish a water-soaked, mold-infested building (the Southern Athletic Club, being transformed into the Garden of Prayer), and helped to sand and otherwise prepare for painting one of the 50 homes (the Major home) currently being refurbished by the St. Bernard Project.

All 27,000 structures in St. Bernard Parish – adjacent to New Orleans’ Lower Ninth Ward – were deemed uninhabitable thanks to Katrina, leaving 67,000 residents homeless. Over the past three years, the St. Bernard Project has worked with more than 21,000 volunteers from around the world to help rebuild more than 275 homes with much more to be done.

ASFE also helped by sponsoring a pajamas and book drive in support of the Pajama Program, a nationwide effort to obtain donations of pajamas and books for distribution to kids in shelters and group homes.

ASFE and the citizens of the New Orleans area thank the many generous contributors.
