People of the Parish: Al

Homeowners always express gratitude to the volunteers who rebuild their home. Al asked us to sign his "wall of angels" containing signatures of the "angels" who helped in the rebuilding effort.

Al was going to wait out Katrina, but the night before the massive flood, he left realizing he needed to get to a safe place to continue to undergo kidney dialysis.

Al grew up in St. Bernard Parish, and is happy to see his community slowly come back to life. He treasures each person who lends a hand to help in the rebuilding effort and wants each of them to remain a part of his home and his life. He asks each volunteer to sign a wall of his home.
