Katrina Relief - Canadian Village
November 21, 2005
The CAW is part of an organization helping to provide long-term support for victims of Hurricane Katrina which devastated the U.S. Gulf
Coast at the end of August 2005.  The project is referred to as Canadian Village in Louisiana.  The village will provide housing for some
of the poorest families, many with children who are in dire need of accommodation in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

CAW members and retirees who are willing to donate a week or two of their time and their skills are needed.  Carpenters or those who
possess the skills to build decks and perform basic carpentry work associated with the Canadian Village project are needed, as well as
volunteers with electrical, plumbing and painting skills.

It is important that the names of interested volunteers be received as soon as possible.  The CAW will provide travel and modest
accommodation.  If you’re interested in volunteering, please contact Nancy Kearnan by e-mail at:  
trades@caw.ca or by telephone at:  1-
800-268-5763 ext 553
