Ways to Give Back
February 23, 2006 – There are still plenty of volunteer opportunities for groups to aid in the ongoing relief and recovery efforts along the United States Gulf Coast.

NTA recently conducted a series of interviews with tourism professionals in the Gulf Coast region for a firsthand update regarding the recovery process, five months later. Each of the experts provided information on who people should contact if they want to take volunteer groups to their area. Excerpts of each of the interviews appeared in NTA’s weekly e-newsletter, Tuesday, from Jan. 24 through Feb. 21. To read each part of the series, click here.
