Gillis, Ellis & Baker Employees Rebuild Gentilly Home Through Rebuilding Together New Orleans
NEW ORLEANS – Employees of Gillis, Ellis & Baker, Inc., spent a recent weekend fixing up the exterior of the Gentilly home of Mrs. Eleanor Sheppard.
The GEB team repaired siding, painted the home's exterior and built safe steps. Before retiring, Sheppard taught business education at Abramson High School. Sheppard has lived in the house, which she inherited from her mother and father, for 25 years.
The effort was through Rebuilding Together New Orleans, whose mission is to allow low-income families to live in safety, warmth and dignity.
