CBS RADIO Hot AC WTIC (96.5 TIC)HARTFORD PD/afternoon co-host JEANNINE JERSEY and sister Rhythmic Top 40 WZMX (HOT 93.7) morning talent NANCY BARROW have been traveling to NEW ORLEANS to help THE HABITAT FOR HUMANITY rebuild "MUSICIAN's VILLAGE," a community being rebuilt to help displaced musicians who were forced from their homes after HURRICANE KATRINA.
HABITAT FOR HUMANITY will return to NEW ORLEANS from WEDNESDAY (2/25) to MONDAY (3/1), and are asking for volunteers to help with the reconstruction effort and are welcoming donations for the cause. Airfare, hotels, and transportation to and from the work site will be provided.
WTIC PD/co-host of THE DAMON SCOTT SHOW JEANNINE JERSEY commented on the relief effort, "With the inauguration this week, and our new President’s call for everyone to make a difference in their communities, the STRENGTH IN NUMBERS FOUNDATION has decided to act NOW. We are raising money to send skilled workers with us to NEW ORLEANS to work with HABITAT FOR HUMANITY...After going last JANUARY, NANCY and I believe that we can help them build homes more efficiently by bringing skilled workers who can hit the ground running. Our aim is to do our part to help get NEW ORLEANS back on its feet, and then, this summer, we plan on working with the HARTFORD CHAPTER OF HABITAT FOR HUMANITY to work here at home when the weather is warmer."
