Brad Pitt heads back to Hurricane Katrina site

By Molly Sullivan

HollywoodNews.com: Brad Pitt continues to dedicate time to New Orleans ever since the Hurricane Katrina disaster and he’s back there now to further help the community.

The actor took some time to speak with NBC News’ Brian Williams about his foundation Make It Happen, reports Just Jared. Pitt took him to a green home that the foundation built in order to benefit the residents who suffered due to Hurricane Katrina.

This weekend will mark the five-year anniversary of the devastating event. Other stars, such as Sandra Bullock, are also in the area to donate their time and attention to events that are going on.

    Thank you Brad for all you do for this community. Last night I walked by your condo in the Quarter. I was a San Diego tourist trapped in the Superdome during Katrina. I have returned for the 5th Anniversary of Katrina and I hope people take the time this weekend to examine the lessons we have learned and to eliminate many of the myths that have cropped up regarding New Orleans and Katrina.
