Josh and Brittany talk about their experience helping out during Hurricane Katrina:
Brittany: "We met in New Orleans doing relief work for Hurricane Katrina. He was down there for a year; I was down there for about six months, and just met down there. He said, 'Do you want to move to Pennsylvania?' and I said, 'Sure! Let's do it!' I was originally from Arizona."
Josh: "We're actually Jehovah's Witnesses. We were down there and we just happened to bump into each other and meet."
Brittany: "We wanted to help other people. Their lives are in shambles, and we wanted to give back and help people out, rebuild their homes. We worked in the Lower Ninth Ward, where there were mostly slums."
Josh: "That's the area that got affected with the levees. That area wasn't supposed to get flooded, but once the levees broke, that's the area that got hit the hardest."
Brittany: "People were always very kind to us. We had to tear walls out and wear Tyvek suits, and we had other crews that would rebuild from the ground up."
J and B also feel very strongly about recycling. In fact, they own Rag and Bone Recycling in Easton. Check out their website at ragandbonerecycling.com.
