Nola girl in Jersey
 

Our lovely volunteers from Princeton, NJ invited CSED's Volunteer Manager Warrenetta to visit their community. While there, they rolled out the red carpet for her, invited her to events and religious services, and asked her to give a presentation about the rebuilding process in New Orleans post-Katrina. 
 
Thank you to our volunteers for your continuous love and support!
