St. Bernard Project is rebuilding communities in the greater New Orleans area. In addition to rebuilding over 270 homes post-Katrina, providing free mental health services to area residents, and beginning a new "Good Work/Good Pay" rebuilding program - SBP is helping local communities rebuild important community services. This week hundreds of high school and college students, under the leadership of Shirts Across America, are giving up their spring vacations to help in the post-Katrina rebuilding effort. This is the second annual trip for Black Hills High School Tumwater Teens. Today, they gutted a former gym in Meraux, Louisiana that will be rebuilt as The Garden of Prayer church. Within a few weeks, it will open its doors.
