Katrina Relief Project Winding Down

Persevere’s Katrina Relief Project will conclude on June 30, 2007. Persevere has been assisting survivors of Hurricane Katrina for over a year from our operations center in Pass Christian, Mississippi. Nearly 400 volunteers came from 30 states and Canada to help those in need.

We are grateful to all of those who gave their time and money to help make Persevere’s Katrina Relief Project a success. Persevere’s volunteers and donors brought the survivors of Katrina concrete progress and hope for the future as they continue to rebuild.

In an effort to finish any outstanding work in Mississippi Persevere has stopped accepting new work orders as of June 12, 2007.

Our final report with all of the facts and figures involving our Katrina Relief Project will be published in the coming weeks and available online. Stay tuned.

Persevere Disaster Relief was created in response to Hurricane Katrina in February, 2006. Following the conclusion of Persevere’s Katrina Relief Project on
June 30, 2007 the organization will essentially be “moth balled.” Persevere will lay dormant and should great need ever arise after a future disaster we will evaluate the situation.
