Continuing the efforts of Unite The United–the charitable foundation created by VANS WARPED TOUR® and Taste Of Chaos Tour founder Kevin Lyman–the VANS WARPED TOUR® partnered with the Volunteer Center of Southwest Louisiana and Cameron Community Action/Council on Aging for a June 29 “Volunteer Day” in Southwest Louisiana to help with the rebuilding and restoring process for victims of last year’s hurricanes. During this day off from the tour, nearly 400 VANS WARPED TOUR® volunteers–including band members and production staff–made the trip to Cameron Parish in Southwest Louisiana to work alongside residents and spend their day helping to rebuild and restore the community.
VANS WARPED TOUR producer and Unite The United founder KEVIN LYMAN commented on the day, noting: “The Unite The United, Vans Warped Day of Volunteerism was pretty amazing and eye opening. The people of Cameron Parish were very thankful for our help and in return, I think we were thankful for the opportunity to help them. On a personal level, I am exhausted in a great way, not the mental way I often find myself on this tour. I will look differently at anyone who complains for the rest of the summer, about cold showers, or anything for that matter. We met people who have survived tragedy and continue to rebuild their lives. Thanks for allowing me a chance to be thankful for everything I have.
