My name is Warrenetta Banks and I serve as the Volunteer Coordinator of the Lower 9th Ward Center for Sustainable Engagement and Development. As a returning resident born and raised in New Orleans post hurricanes Katrina and Rita it has been a struggle to rebuild our Historic Lower 9th Ward Community. I am truly grateful to Patti Vile and Volunteers Expedition and the many wonderful volunteers she continue to bring every year to help rebuild our lives, homes, churches, gardens and neighborhoods in the City of New Orleans. Most of the volunteers are unskilled in carpentry work but they bring so much love, hope and joy to us. Their work is priceless! I am so grateful to Volunteer Expedition volunteers that come from far and near to help me rebuild our beautiful City of New Orleans!

My time was spent with a key member of Volunteer Expeditions. This organization wants to contribute to meaningful service projects that are needed while still having each volunteer understand community needs and be forever changed by their experience. I'm proud and excited to work with the staff of Volunteer Expeditions.
