"Days of Our Lives" actors help Katrina rebuilding

Actors from "Days of Our Lives" are helping to rebuild homes for families still displaced by Hurricane Katrina.

On Wednesday, the cast of the soap opera that's been on the air for 45 years will welcome a New Orleans family as they move into a new home and provide furniture for them. On Thursday, the cast members will help rebuild another home and raise money for its construction.

Actors James Reynolds, Kristian Alfonso, Peter Reckell, Joe Mascolo and former cast member Deidre Hall are among the stars on tour promoting the show's book, "Days of Our Lives 45 Years: A Celebration in Photos."

Since Katrina hit in 2005, the St. Bernard Project has rebuilt homes for more than 350 families with the help of more than 32,000 volunteers.
