NEW ORLEANS (AP) - U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Secretary Shaun Donovan will be in New Orleans Monday to help volunteers rebuild a home destroyed by Hurricane Katrina and to promote a federal summer volunteerism program.

Donovan and volunteers will be working in the city's Gentilly neighborhood, which was hard hit when Katrina struck in August 2005, flooding 80% of the city.

He also will promote the President Barack Obama's Summer of Service Initiative of community service.
