KELLER, TX – March 8, 2012 – In the wake of Hurricane Katrina, the New Orleans Dream Center was founded to care for those who cannot care for themselves or do not have the resources to do so, including the poor, the sick, the needy and the physically challenged. Dr. Todd Plott of Dermatology Alliance Keller is part of a mission group from North Texas that will be working at the Dream Center March 11-15 to help get the facility open and provide life changing services to those in need.
The New Orleans Dream Center is based around a three pronged approach of practical help, fulfilling education and spiritual guidance. It is their stance that such a method can help pull those devastated to hope and restoration. Each year the center reaches over 1,000 individuals of various ages and cultures in providing them free services such as health care, adult education and after school programs.
Dr. Plott and other volunteers will also work with Project Green of New Orleans in sorting and assisting the recycling center to help both New Orleans and the environment. On the last day of the mission trip, they will do a prayer walk and Adopt-A-Block in the French Quarter.
“I am inspired by the opportunity to make an impact on people’s lives. Being able to go to New Orleans and physically work at helping others is an opportunity I could not pass up. I am a firm believer in giving back to the community in anyway that I can,” commented Dr. Plott, who also performs pro bono skin cancer screenings at schools in businesses in North Texas.
