Bourbon Street NY Give Back to New Orleans

On the 3rd anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, New York’s Bourbon Street Bar & Grill is supporting the work of The Saint Bernard Project and their “24 Hour Build”.
The St. Bernard Project is working around the clock – from 9 a.m. August 29 to 9 a.m. August 30 – to rebuild five homes and build awareness. The owners of Bourbon Street Bar and Grille will be joining the construction teams there to lend a hand. This effort is in advance of their official launch (September 17th) which will serve as a fundraiser for the Saint Bernard Project. Proceeds from September 17th, 18th and 19th will be donated to this cause. Their goal is to raise $12,000, the amount needed to rebuild one gutted home.

If you wish to donate, you can do so by going to The Saint Bernard Project website at StBernardProject.org or by coming to their fundraising events on September 17th, 18th and 19th. More details on that event will be announced soon.

The St. Bernard Project was started in March 2006 by Zack Rosenburg and Liz McCartney after the couple volunteered in St. Bernard in February. During their initial month of service, they met residents who were courageous, spirited and determined to rebuild their lives and community. They shared their stories, opened their homes and made Liz and Zack laugh, cry and question their own values. Inspired by the residents’ collective spirit, openness and fierce desire to rebuild their lives and community, Zack and Liz decided to create an organization that would provide vital resources and support to families in a seamless and timely manner. The St. Bernard Project’s programs and goals are directly driven by the needs expressed by the community members.

The mission of the St. Bernard Project is to remove barriers for families who wish to move back into their homes in St. Bernard Parish, Louisiana. St. Bernard is a uniquely tight-knit, working/middle class community adjacent to New Orleans’ Lower Ninth Ward and is arguably the area hardest hit by hurricane Katrina. The St. Bernard Project, a nonprofit, community-based organization carries out its mission through three primary programs: Rebuilding Program, Center for Wellness and Mental Health and Senior Housing Program.
