St. Scholastica

Today we had more than 30 volunteers from St. Scholastica Academy in Covington out at our South Salcedo rebuild site as we prepare for an Open House on Saturday. Thanks to all who made the trip and helped out, as well as the school for a generous donation to YRNO!

John Harty was one of the chaperones for the students. He says he participates in rebuilding efforts a few times a year, and believes in making progress one house at a time.

“It aids the city when people can move into houses like this and become a part of our community.”

Well said, John!
