Gulf Coast Disaster Relief
Villanova University School of Business
Since Hurricane Katrina hit in 2005, the Villanova School of Business has sent groups of students to volunteer at local Habitat for Humanity sites every semester to help rebuild the Gulf Coast Region. The trip is entirely student-funded, and led by business school professors, Dr. Robert Nydick and Dr. Daniel Wright.
To date, the group has taken eight trips to the Gulf Coast to aid in the clearing and rebuilding efforts.
Hurricane Katrina caused more than $89.6 billion worth of damage to the Gulf Coast.
In addition to contributing manual labor, students have raised and donated nearly $45,000 to various charitable organizations who are leading the rebuilding efforts. Fundraising activities have included t-shirt sales, Villanova Church and Bartley Hall statue sales, raffles, and generous donations from people like you.
