Our Last Rebuilding Trip of the Year!

December 26 - 31, 2007

End 2007 on a meaningful note: join us in helping families in Pearlington, Mississippi rebuild their homes. There is still a tremendous need for volunteers, and skilled volunteers are especially needed.

As always, we will be staying at the Camp Coastal Outpost volunteer center in Kiln, Mississippi. Costs for food and lodging are $15 per night, per person. We will also make our usual side trip to New Orleans one afternoon and evening. You won't believe what you will see, nearly two and a half years after the storm!

Anyone interested in participating in this trip please contact Linda at linda@pickinupthepieces.org or 912-429-4220. Space is limited, so reserve your spot now!

Thank you to all for the tremendous response to our "Adopt and Angel Program"!! We adopted out 162 children!!
It was great. We ended up servicing 280 with the help of the Stennis Rotary Club. All of our Angels got adopted out and we also had 6 families. We ran out of Angels to adopt :-)

Hi Again...
Some of you have asked about whether we were planning a trip over the holidays...the answer is YES!
December 26 - 30. Anyone wishing to finish out the 2006 year making a difference in the lives of those affected by Katrina are welcome to join us. Please visit our website under "How You Can Help" at Pickin Up The Pieces for more information.

11/29 Adopt an Angel
We are doing an Adopt an Angel Project similar to the one that we did last year. There are 126 children under 10 y.o. in the Pearlington, MS community that we would like to share a little holiday cheer with. These children continue to face the after-effects of hurricane Katrina in a community that is still struggling to recover.
Many of these families haven't had Christmas since before The Storm, so please take that into consideration when you give this year.

If you choose to buy online, you can ship directly to the addresses given here and most companies are giving free shipping online until at least the first week of December.

I would love to know if you plan on helping, please leave a comment at the bottom of this post - click on the word 'comment'. Thank you!
