Volunteer Day: Last Chance to Sign Up is TODAY! And Another Project Underway!

Today is the last chance to sign up for DRI Volunteer Day. It’s already officially sold out but we wanted to give one last chance for volunteers to join us May 19 in New Orleans. So, we’ve worked with Habitat for Humanity and Second Harvest/Feeding America to add a few more spots. If you haven’t signed up yet, do it now by calling us

If you miss out on our Volunteer Day, sponsored by DRI International and the DRI Foundation, there are still ways you can help the city while you’re there. Check out  The St. Bernard Project (SBP), which won the CNN “Heroes”award a few years back. More about SBP below, but first, be sure to read this week’s “Clyde’s Corner” for a touching first-hand account of rebuilding New Orleans.
is an award-winning rebuilding, nonprofit organization whose mission is to remove physical, mental and emotional barriers for vulnerable families, senior citizens, and disabled residents who are struggling to recover from the devastation and trauma caused by Hurricane Katrina and the Oil Spill. With its innovative, vertically integrated construction system, SBP is poised to serve as a model for disaster rebuilding and affordable housing. With clients throughout the Greater New Orleans area, SBP reaches the communities most in need.
