St. Bernard Project credits AmeriCorps for its success in returning 800 homes to families.
A New Orleans-area non-profit is marking the 20th anniversary of the AmeriCorps volunteer program with all-night rebuilding projects. The events are planned at disaster-recovery zones from the Gulf Coast to New York City.
The St. Bernard Project is announcing a $100,000 grant from Toyota to continue building and rebuilding homes damaged or destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. The non-profit is even more grateful for training it received from the car manufacturer.
