Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Shirts Across America as we continue to bring people home in New Orleans. Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast in August 2005, devastating much of Mississippi and New Orleans, Louisiana. In their efforts to rebuild, many families fell victim to contractor fraud and suffered due to the challenges created by bureaucratic inefficiency, lack of resources, and unequal allocation of aid.
It can take up to 20 years for a city to recover from a disaster like Hurricane Katrina. Even though the news crews left a couple weeks after the storm, SAA still stands with the people of New Orleans.
Shirts Across America is committed to engage volunteers like you to help build homes in the New Orleans throughout the school year.
To date SAA has sent over 2,700 volunteers to New Orleans as we continue to help the community rebuild itself. Thank you for being a part of the effort to solve this solvable problem.
