Newsboys Build Tent Village For Hurricane Katrina Relief Workers
19 September 2005

The Grammy nominated rock band, newsboys, constructed 20 tents for the temporary housing of relief workers in the Hurricane Katrina-ravaged city of Gulfport, Mississippi, on Monday.

The 20 x 20 ft. tents, formerly used as a portable music venue on the traveling Festival Con Dios tours, will serve as temporary shelters for the next few months. Volunteers from the relief agency PRC Compassion will manage the compound. PRC Compassion has been on the ground in several large cities in Mississippi and Louisiana providing supplies and support to those in need.

"After reviewing all the options for how we could provide aide to the region, we decided an appropriate first response would be to utilize the portable tents from our Festival Con Dios tours," said newsboys Band Manager/Inpop Records President Wes Campbell.

On Monday, a team of newsboys crew members, management staff and band members, including keyboardist Jeff Frankenstein and drummer Duncan Phillips, landed at the Gulfport International Airport and spent the day setting up a village that will house over 100 relief workers from various hurricane aide organizations.

"To see the devastation first hand was a real eye opener for us," said keyboardist Jeff Frankenstein, "and we felt called to help out in whatever way possible."

Additionally, newsboys are working on benefit opportunities in conjunction with its fall touring schedule. More details will be announced soon.
