Youth Rebuilding New Orleans announces the availability of a new 25-person volunteer bunkhouse. New Orleans has one less blighted house because of this housing site for visiting public servants.
Online PR News – 13-May-2013 – NEW ORLEANS, LA., April 2013 – Youth Rebuilding New Orleans announces a new volunteer housing space is available for volunteers who want to reduce blight and contribute to the rebirth of New Orleans neighborhoods and culture. The bunkhouse easily accommodates 25 people and has large spaces for cooking, dining, and entertaining.
The bunkhouse is a formerly blighted piece of property that Youth Rebuilding New Orleans (YRNO) purchased, rebuilt, and restored. The amenities and location are some of the most appealing things about this volunteer bunkhouse. New Orleans volunteers that are participating in YRNO projects can access free Wi-Fi, televisions, Xbox, board games, and more amenities with the new volunteer housing. The bunkhouse is located at 1933 Hope Street, just minutes from the French Quarter. The housing can be reserved by individuals, families, school groups, or church organizations that want to participate in YRNO volunteer projects.
“I am really proud of all of our young people who came together to see this project through to completion,” says William Stoudt, Executive Director of YRNO. “Having a bunkhouse available to our volunteers makes their stay easier and convenient. We want to provide as much as possible to the volunteer groups as a way of saying thanks for their help!”
Though many organizations in the area promote volunteer work, New Orleans’ YRNO encourages and accepts volunteers of all ages. The organization was started by a dedicated group of local teenagers who wanted to do their part in helping the New Orleans community.
To learn more about the availability of the new volunteer bunkhouse, New Orleans team members from YRNO invite interested parties to contact them for more information or to reserve the building.
