SGA helps New Orleans residents rebuild
The Pulaski Technical College Student Government Association (SGA) is dedicated to community service. The organization is involved in many community service projects throughout the year including the Angel Tree project and the Watershed Project. After Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast, the organization decided to get involved in community service on the national level.
After inquiring through FEMA, SGA was linked to the Louisiana United Methodist Storm Relief Center (LUMSRC) in Baton Rouge, LA. The group was assigned to the LUMSRC Uptown Station in New Orleans, LA where they volunteered twice. The Pulaski Technical College SGA plans to continue their volunteer work with the New Orleans LUMSRC until their assistance is no longer needed.

How can you help?
The Disaster Recovery Ministry of the Louisiana Annual Conference of The United Methodist Church needs your help as they serve those affected by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.
Volunteers have been the key element in creating this vital ministry which is helping to restore homes, churches and lives in South Louisiana. In many ways, this recovery effort is like a pot of gumbo- it is made with a little bit of this and a little bit of that. LUMSRC’s “gumbo” of volunteers includes folks of all ages from different ethnic groups, denominations, colleges, and civic and non-profit organizations—all of them selflessly committed to serving the people of Louisiana.
When you volunteer, you are helping to restore mental health and giving hope to the hopeless. As you rebuild lives and churches, the joy from giving selflessly to others is the gift you receive.
