The Twilight star takes a break from filming Breaking Dawn to help the St. Bernard Project

Kellan Lutz isn’t just a sexy vampire. The actor showed his philanthropic side on Jan. 28, when he and Twilight castmates lent their hands helping in the rebuilding efforts of post-Katrina Louisiana. The 25-year-old hottie, wearing a “Be A Saint Be 4 NOLA” t-shirt, tweeted a photo while building homes during his time off from filming Breaking Dawn.

Kellan was joined by costars Rami Malek, who plays a vampire named Benjamin, and Casey LaBow, better known as ‘vegetarian’ vampire Kate, to help rebuild houses. While volunteering, the cast posed for pictures with one lucky homeowner named Rosalie.

Their efforts are part of the St. Bernard Project, which creates housing opportunities that allow Hurricane Katrina survivors to return their homes and communities since its creation in 2006. The organization consists of three programs: Rebuilding Program, Center for Wellness and Mental Health, and Opportunity Housing Program.

Before filming wraps, Kellan and the rest of the Twilight cast appear to be making the most out of their time in Louisiana. Kellan began working with the St. Bernard Project a year ago while filming Love, Wedding, Marriage with Mandy Moore in New Orleans.
