Volunteers Give Their Break to Katrina Victims

Listen to this story
It may be spring break, but it's not the beach, for some local volunteers spending the week in Mississippi. The group organized by Adirondack habitat for Humanity arrived in Pearlington, Mississippi Sunday. They're working with a group called "One-House-at-a-Time" that builds houses for Hurricane Katrina victims - for free. Pearlington is a little town that was pretty much flattened by Katrina - of its 800 homes, only three were livable right after the storm. But they're gaining. Chandler Ralph is CEO of Adirondack Medical Center in Saranac Lake. She's one of the volunteers in Pearlington now. She talked with Martha Foley.
