On March 18, 2007, Dave and I will be traveling to Hattiesburg, Mississippi to join a team of Habitat volunteers in rebuilding the community there. Despite being about 75 miles inland, Hattiesburg was hit very hard by Hurricane Katrina. The city is currently strained by a large influx of temporary and permanent evacuees from nearby communities. We will spend a week building homes for families who lost everything in the disaster.
We’ll share photos and stories afterward here on our blog. In the meantime, check out the photos we took when we visited New Orleans, then drove out of New Orleans, then drove through Gulfport and Biloxi in August 2006.
