Two Bronx pastors travel to Louisiana to help Hurricane Katrina victimsPosted: Updated:
Hurricane Katrina has brought massive acts of kindness on behalf of relief workers. Two Bronx pastors are practicing what they preach by traveling to the bayou state and helping out their Louisiana neighbors.
Reverend Fernando Rodriguez and Dr. Fernando Cabrera say they want to help Hurricane Katrina victims both financially and spiritually. Cabrera and Rodriguez have packed their bags to help a Louisiana pastor who has opened his church as a refuge for homeless survivors.
The two pastors were both trained in trauma counseling and say they are going to help 100 Louisiana pastors on how to offer support to victims. With the help of 50 other Bronx and city pastors, Rodriguez and Cabrera have raised more than $6,000 in relief funds.
The two pastors say later this month they plan to host a food drive and another trip to the bayou to bring the donated canned goods.Related Story Bronx Hurricane Katrina Relief
