About Us

We are Building New Orleans – 10 Years LATER!

Shirts Across America

Shirts Across America was created by high school and college students in Seattle, Washington to help move families home in New Orleans and Mississippi.  People told us we couldn’t make a difference, they said we were too young.

We decided to prove them wrong.

Since January 2007

  • Shirts Across America has fully funded the rebuilding of 15 homes in New Orleans (NOLA) and Mississippi through donations and time worked by volunteers.
  • Our volunteers have worked on 140+ homes/projects in the Gulf Coast region.
  • Shirts Across America has sent over 2,000 volunteers to NOLA and Mississippi.
  • SAA has donated well over 60,000 volunteer hours in New Orleans.
