On Feb. 17 to 23, Pastor Barbara Pease of the Milwaukee, Newton, and Schultzville United Methodist Churches, joined a team of volunteers from UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief) to help rebuild homes devastated from the storm surge that hit Slidell, Louisiana during Hurricane Katrina. The team put siding on a home for a woman who has been living in a FEMA trailer for the past two years and also did some interior repairs.
