TCNJ Bonner Blogs from New Orleans

A group of 30 Bonner Center employees and Bonner Community Scholars are spending a week working in New Orleans with the United Saints Recovery Project, a volunteer organization that assists the elderly, disabled, and otherwise disadvantaged in rehabilitating and rebuilding their homes. They are recording their experiences on a blog that will feature the impressions, as well as accounts of challenges and accomplishments, of both the staff and students taking part in the Center’s fifth annual post-Katrina service mission.

In a special series, The Times of Trenton follows a team of TCNJ’s Bonner Scholars as they rebuild still-devastated neighborhoods in New Orleans five years after Hurricane Katrina laid them waste.
