This past October, 2010, several members of the eGenerationMarketing team had the opportunity to travel to New Orleans, Louisiana to contribute to a house building project through the Habitat for Humanity organization. eGenerationMarketing employees Chris Iannella, Dan Mummolo, and Ram Meyyappan volunteered their time on a build in the historic Carrollton neighborhood of uptown New Orleans, an area still recovering from the devastating impact of Hurricane Katrina.
During their week at the Carrollton build, the eGenerationMarketing employees worked closely with professional builders, as well as the future owners of the residence, to assist in framing the house and laying down plywood for the roof of the building.
Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit organization that works to provide decent yet affordable housing to low-income families through the help of donated materials and volunteer labor.
