Restroom Trailer Constructed for Biloxi, Miss. Volunteers
Mar. 23, 2006 - Students at Northeast Community College in Norfolk, Neb., converted a 48-foot storage unit into men’s and women’s restrooms, complete with commodes, sinks, lighting, and two sets of washers and dryers. Students from the Building and Construction, Electrical, and Heating-Ventilation-Air Conditioning (HVAC) classes participated in the volunteer project.
The restroom facility was shipped in late March to “Camp Biloxi,” which is next door to Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Biloxi, Miss. There it was taken off the trailer chassis and placed next to the Orphan Grain Train Shower Trailer, which was built and trucked there last December.
