Decorate a Drywall Screw to Help Victims of Katrina

A group of 35 committed, caring teenage volunteers from the Deep River Congregational Church Disaster Relief Team are holding a fundraising campaign at Essex Hardware on Saturday, March 26, 2011 between 10 a.m.- 1 p.m., during which  donors will be invited to decorate a drywall screw.

The decorated screws will be taken down to New Orleans and used by the youths on July 16 – 23, 2011 when they will be participating in a week of rebuilding homes and spirits of victims of Katrina which occurred 5 years ago. Often, after the spotlight and the media have left a natural disaster site the need for help continues for years.

Please come and support the group.  Drywall screws were generously donated by Essex Hardware for the cause. If you can’t attend our event, please consider a donation to help the teens purchase supplies needed for their trip to New Orleans.

Donations can be mailed to DRCC, P.O. Box 246, Deep River, CT 06417. Checks should be made payable to DRCC; please indicate “NOLA” on the memo line. DRCC is a 503 (3) organization and your donation is tax deductible.
