South Georgians still helps rebuild Gulf Coast

July 14, 2006

Albany -- Nearly a year after hurricanes Katrina and Rita devastated the Gulf Coast, South Georgia relief and rebuilding teams are still helping out.

Nineteen members of Albany First United Methodist Church will leave in the morning for Slidell, Louisiana to rebuild damaged homes, fix roofs, and lay down new flooring.

It's an eight-day trip the group says they're happy to be part of."Twelve years ago when the flood of '94 hit Albany we were inandated with volunteers who rebuilt our county and surrounding counties, and were were blessed by it and we would like to be a blessing to others," said Becky Boyd.

The group is teamed up with the national United Methodist Committee for relief.
