December 22, 2012- Well, it’s the time of the year when we wish each other Merry Christmas, shop and make plans to celebrate Christ’s birth with our family and friends. In my family there are a lot of people we consider family, but are not related to us. We like to call them “family by choice”.

The Hands Who’ve Helped

Isn’t it amazing what we can achieve when we come together? I always think two is better than one, a family is more powerful than an individual, and (as I often say around the office) team work makes the dream work.

When I moved to New Orleans in 2008, I wasn’t sure where the road would lead me but I certainly didn’t expect that we, as a city, would be fortunate enough to continue to welcome volunteers year after year. We are so grateful and lucky to have your help.
