This is my public journal on my trip to Biloxi. I will be in Biloxi, MS from January 7-14th. We will be repairing homes that were damaged during Hurricane Katrina. I'm going with Seattle Works, part of the Hands-On network. I volunteer with them locally, and jumped at the opportunity to volunteer in Mississippi. My Dad was born in Mississippi and I have cousins who live in Biloxi. I am excited to work hard and learn skills, as well as a greater sense of awareness to the devastation caused by the hurricane.
