Contact: Courtney Williams · cwilliam@loyno.edu · 504-865-3622

Location: Einstein Charter School at Sarah T. Reed Campus 5316 Michoud Blvd., New Orleans, LA 70129

In the ten years since Hurricane Katrina, hundreds of thousands of volunteers from down the street and around the world have demonstrated an extraordinary spirit of service. Today, non-profit organizations, neighborhood associations, schools, corporations and other community partners remain committed New Orleans’ culture of volunteerism.

On Saturday, August 29, Mayor Mitch Landrieu will host one of the most comprehensive and unique service projects in the country. The Citywide Day of Service will engage thousands of volunteers and focus service on seven specific regions of the City. Volunteers will support over 100 individual projects. Our specific project is to beautify and transform the school and campus at Einstein Charter School.  Activities will include painting, landscaping, and building outdoor furniture.  

For questions about participating, contact Courtney Williams at cwilliam@loyno.edu or at 504-865-3622.  Learn more about the Katrina 10 Project.
