SHERMAN, Tex. -- A group of Austin College students have packed up their suitcases and are headed to New Orleans for Spring Break, but not to party like other college students will be this month. This group is heading southeast to help rebuild homes.
This is the third annual trip for nearly fifty students and teachers since Hurricane Katrina ravaged the New Orleans area in 2005. The group will help clean out some of the homes still in ruins and start rebuilding others they have cleaned the last two times they were in Louisiana.
Students say they are willing to give up their spring break if it means helping others in need.
The group is scheduled to return to Texas next Wednesday night.
