From Bay St. Louis

Have some free time? Why not head down?

From Jennifer Feltner:
" However, nearly two years after Hurricane Katrina passed through Bay St. Louis Mississippi, the need for help is still great - many residents remain in FEMA trailers and many of the homes damaged and destroyed by the storm are still uninhabitable. Unfortunately, as time has passed the number of volunteers, particularly those skilled volunteers who can really make a difference, are also dwindling. Our team of long term volunteers is doing a great job, but we cannot do it alone.

This summer, and into the fall, we have several major rebuilding projects lined up to tackle:

-3 Complete Rebuilds: We are building three houses from the ground up that must be completed by the end of September.

-5 Major Rehabs: We are taking five homes that are "dried in" and completing the electrical, plumbing, HVAC, insulation, drywall, painting, cabinets, doors, trim and flooring.

-12 Small Remodels: We're helping 12 families with the finishing touches on their homes. Work ranges from installing flooring and cabinets, fixing minor plumbing or electrical problems.

We need your help!! If you are skilled in construction and would like to volunteer for a week or more, please contact St. Rose's Volunteer Coordinator, Jennifer Feltner at 228-239-2477 or"
