Church volunteers help rehab Luling home
Every summer, more than 10,000 teens from churches around the country take part in Catholic HEART Workcamp. This summer, roughly 50 cities, including New Orleans, hosted camps. Once the church groups arrive at their respective cities, the teens reach out to different agencies in order to find work.
Brandon Quigley, youth director of St. Rose of Limia Catholic Church in Mufreesboro, Tenn., said the work camp is his favorite week of the year.
“I get to bring my best teenagers and put them to work. They sleep in classrooms on the floor, have cold showers outside and eat garbage food for a week – and they love it,” Quigley said. “Typically we gain a response large enough to then jumpstart a few things back home where the teens want to give back.”
Quigley and his group spent four days working on the Paul Maillard home. They began by replacing all the rotted wood on the structure before repainting the entire house.
During the week, the work camp groups in the New Orleans area painted homes, helped with yard work and distributed food to the needy.
