Review for Community Center of St Bernard, Arabi, LA, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

I give them 4 stars only because 5 would be perfect, and who's perfect? I spent a volunteer week with them, doing whatever odd jobs they needed - very non-glamorous work, but they were very thankful and appreciative. There is a small permanent staff doing the non-glamorous every day. The area east of New Orleans was devastated, and there are hundreds, perhaps thousands of area families and individuals who still need what CC of St B provides: goods, services, counseling. I plan to get back next chance I can, but there are other ways to help. Check their website for ideas of painless ways to help/donate etc.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

dedicated, no-nonsense, focused.
