United Way goes to New Orleans to help the many displaced and desperate people that are still living there.
I'm going to St Bernard Parish this spring break through United Way to help rebuild homes and help move displaced people back in where Hurricane Katrina struck a few years ago.
In case you don't believe that things could still be that bad in New Orleans- the Associated Press video I attached is from last August, showing how people are STILL immensely affected by what happened more than 4 years ago.
All your donations will go toward United Way's efforts in New Orleans- I have to raise the first $125 to support lodging for myself as a volunteer for the duration of spring break in New Orleans. Everything past that goes to United Way to support building, supplies, and other funds for New Orleans.
Any amount donated would be awesome!

United Way of North Central Florida was founded in 1957 (as United Way of Alachua County) to increase the organized capacity of people to care for one another. United Way organizes experienced community volunteers to raise and distribute Community Care Fund contributions to local human care agencies. We also provide community support, promote community collaboration and offer technical assistance to non-profit organizations. We support a variety of local human service agencies that touch the lives of thousands of people in our community. These local agencies provide invaluable services including hot, nutritious meals to homebound seniors; shelter and safety for victims of domestic violence; emergency relief for families in need; and safe after-school activities for children.
