The Tumwater Teens left yesterday for New Orleans! Tomorrow we start our work rebuilding a home destroyed when the levees failed after Hurricane Katrina in August 2005. St. Bernard Project has rebuilt over 350 homes to date! The Teens have been busy since November getting ready for this trip. First, they raised about $800 for St. Bernard Project in their Home for the Holidays campaign. Then they started putting on garage sales, and selling candy bars, and recruiting local sponsors to help pay for their trip. They were able to fundraise for approximately $350 of the $700 cost for the trip.

Tumwater Teens want to give a special thanks to their local business sponsors:

  • Titus Will Olympia, a car deal at the Olympia auto mall

  • South Sound Women's Center, offers medical care for women

  • Dr. Joseph de Jesus, DDS, PS, Orthodontics for Children and Adults
