Following is some detailed information on the December trip to
Ohio University's chapter of Aphio has been involved with Saint
Bernard Project since I before I pledged as a freshman (so, so long ago).
Every year we send volunteers to help rebuild houses for families that
cannot afford to do so, so they can return home. Saint Bernard Project is
a non-profit organization that was started after Hurricane Katrina, and has
won contests such as the Pepsi Refresh Contest and CNN's Hero of the Year.
The trip will be from December 5th-11th. We will be staying at Camp
Hope, a volunteer hostel that costs $25/day INCLUDING 3 meals a day. That
is not to say that we do not go out to eat once or twice, or go out and
enjoy the New Orleans culture some nights. Generally we carpool down to
NOLA using family vans or cars that are decent on gas; it usually costs
about $55 per person round trip. Generally I tell people to plan on
spending around $300.
Here are some videos about New Orleans, and how the area is still
