On Saturday, August 29th, the Broadmoor NEXT Group organized
our troops to join volunteers all across New Orleans on the tenth anniversary
of Hurricane Katrina.
Broadmoor employees enthusiastically teamed with the St.
Bernard Project (SBP), a local non-profit, to help rebuild a home in a Gentilly
neighborhood that is still struggling to come back. Broadmoor and SBP got
together on the Citywide Day of Service for this project. Tasks included
taping/floating/finishing of drywall, painting, hanging doors, cutting and
installing wood base, installing window stools, and more. One of the most
memorable parts of the day was hearing the story of the homeowners, learning that
they were advocates of the rebuilding of Carver High School that Broadmoor is
currently working on, and being able to see our Carver jobsite from their
"Saturday was a special day in the city and I am happy that
Broadmoor was able to give back.” said Nathan Hunter, Broadmoor’s Director of
Preconstruction. "Thanks to everyone for participating.”
Broadmoor participants included Nathan Hunter, Taylor
Pospisil, Tyler Sandlass, Greg Lusignan, Chad Simonson, LaRae Bowman, David
Evans, Nicole Schwartz, Kenny Blow, Christin Willie, Richard Rogers, Roy
Mouledous, James Kinberger, Peter Doty, and John Enslen.
