Tuesday's Children And The American Widow Project Rebuild For Hurricane Victims
NEW ORLEANS, Nov. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Tuesday's Children, the leading non-profit working with children and families affected by the events of September 11, 2001, has partnered with The American Widow Project to participate in a build for a family in New Orleans who lost their home to a hurricane.
The women will be taking part in a St. Bernard Project weekend-long home build in the areas of New Orleans still recovering from the effects of Hurricane Katrina and newly-impacted areas hit this year by Hurricane Isaac. The need in these communities remains great given the tremendous amount of damage caused by these storms, as most recently seen by Superstorm Sandy in the Northeast.
Tuesday's Children family members who lost their husbands on September 11(th) are honored to join with women from The American Widow Project, a non-profit organization founded in 2007 whose core focus is to provide peer-to-peer support and resources to women who have lost a husband or fiance in military service, whether to an accident or illness or in combat in Iraq and Afghanistan. These women will be honoring their loved ones' legacies by joining together and healing through helping others.
Taryn Davis, Founder and Executive Director of The American Widow Project, said, "It is an honor to have the spouses of 9/11 victims come together with spouses of our fallen service members to give back, heal and bond. These women are all survivors and the definition of perseverance. The American Widow Project is honored to have Tuesday's Children, and all of those they serve, become a source of hope to all the families who will never forget the sacrifices made for our great Nation."
