New Patron Saint of New Orleans

Drew  BreesNew Orleans Saints’ quarterback Drew Brees and his wife Brittany founded the Brees Dream Foundation to rebuild children’s facilities and programs throughout New Orleans. USA Today featured Brees, 28, at the unveiling of the Dream Foundation, calling him “the patron Saint of hope in a place where so much is still needed”…

Teaming up with Operation Kids, a national children’s charity, Brees launched a $2.5 million slate of projects this summer to enhance kids’ lives following Hurricane Katrina: classrooms, athletic fields, parks and playgrounds, after-school programs, and mentoring for the intellectually disabled, even child-care facilities. Thanks to Bob Gibson for submitting info on the Operation Kids partnership.
