A local supervisor, moved over to the international wing of HFH. He's
been sent to Hurricane Katrina ravaged areas. They told him there was
no housing, but rumor has it HFH promised him his own tent.
Funny thing is he joked about it, and if it's true, he's a real hero
for taking the position to help the hurricane victims.

I've been trying to volunteer down in the gulf for Katrina rebuilding
for several weeks. All my emails to Habitat national and the regional
Alabama and Mississippi affiliates have gone unanswered. Seems like
nobody's interested in a lone volunteer. I've talked to a couple of
people who've gone as part of, say, 10-person groups from a church or a
rotary club, but I don't belong to either.
Anyone have any suggestions on how to find a project for a week as a
single volunteer? Don't mind tent or sleeping bag.
First, I do not WORK for HFH.
Second, talk to your local chapter. They were advertising for
individual volunteers to go down to Jackson, Miss. They offered
barracks like a commidations and a couple meals. Rumor has it, food
was being donated above what HFH was giving, so you could get several
Third, look at the actual HFH website, I found this request for
volunteers in Ga. http://www.urlbee.com?2325
Remember, I do not represent HFH, so you need to do what you are
doing, ask around. Just to the right people.
I've been volunteering for about a year now. I'm a licensed
electrician, so my skills are in demand, but they/we are always
willing to teach those who want to learn.
Volunteering with them has opened my eyes to the number of people out
there who can afford a certain amount of cost, but really can't afford
rip off prices for services.
I highly recommend volunteering.
