Thank you for supporting the St. Bernard Project. A group of Gann Academy students and faculty members are traveling to New Orleans in late March to build and re-build homes of families who are still struggling to recover from Hurricane Katrina. We're hosting an online auction to raise money for the organization we'll be working with, the St. Bernard Project, which as already built 352 homes with 31,000 volunteers.

2011 marks the fifth service trip Gann has taken to New Orleans. With thousands of residents still displaced, our group is dedicate to raising money to help bring these residents closer to returning home. Please bid on the items below, and/or consider pledging a donation to support the St. Bernard Project's efforts. Please note that all the money raised will go directly to this organization.

Thank You
