Vans Warped Tour Rebuilding Southwest Louisiana

Artists, Crew And Sponsors From Vans Warped Tour And Unite The United Foundation Will Be Returning To Southwest Louisiana To Aid Elderly And Disabled Residents With Ongoing Rebuilding Efforts

It has been 33 months since the devastation of hurricanes Katrina and Rita hit the United States' Gulf Coast region. Unfortunately, the communities in the Gulf Coast are still suffering and the rebuilding continues.

Immediately following these natural disasters, there was a generous outpouring of both monetary donations and volunteer efforts, but those have greatly declined. While larger cities, such as New Orleans, have received much publicity, there are hundreds of smaller, communities throughout the region that have received little to no attention from volunteers or public aid.

In June of 2006, the Vans Warped Tour brought 400 volunteers to Cameron Parish, Louisiana to assist the residents in clearing over 7 tons of debris left from the devastation of hurricane Rita. Today the debris is mostly gone, but the communities are struggling to rebuild. There are many elderly and disabled residents who have little or no assistance to restore their homes, libraries and community centers. The Volunteer Center of Southwest Louisiana, and Cameron Community Action/Council on Aging have asked the Vans Warped Tour to return this summer to lend a hand.

On July 7th--a day off between shows--artists, crew members and tour sponsors will aid in the rebuilding of these small communities.

If you wish to help with these ongoing efforts, we are happy to accept monetary donations or in-kind items that we may sell through our charity auction (autographed music memorabilia, concert tickets or any other sellable items). All donations are tax deductible.

Please contact us for more information at: unitetheunited@gmail.com.

Thank you for your support,

Kevin Lyman and Laura MurphyUnite The United Foundation
