TGP participates in the Tricentennial Service Challenge

In recent months, the Green Project has participated in the Tricentennial Service Challenge, a partnership between United Way of Southeast LouisianaHandsOn New Orleans and NetWork Volunteers  that encourages 300,000 hours of service in New Orleans through 300 projects.

Since January, we’ve logged 3132.5 hours through our volunteer programs! Our volunteers come from all walks of life. Students, community members, businesses and more help us reclaim paint and building materials, educate residents and empower communities.

What’s more, United Way of Southeast Louisiana has awarded the Green Project $1,000 for reaching over 1,000 service hours! We couldn’t be more proud of our volunteers and our community. Here are some highlights from the past few months…

 

TEAM DEPOT

We partnered with Team Depot to build playhouses for local families of military veterans. We spent all day building, designing and painting these tiny dwellings based on the kids’ favorite things.

 

GUTTMAN COMMUNITY COLLEGE

Volunteers from Guttman Community College helped us sort paint and prep materials for an upcoming project.

 

iSEATZ

NetWork Volunteers helped coordinate a service day for iSeatz at the Green Project. Volunteers helped sort paint, build out our garden and prep materials for an upcoming project.

 

ARC OF GREATER NEW ORLEANS

Nearly every Friday, Arc of Greater New Orleans helps out at the Green Project by planting seeds, sorting paint and with many other projects.

In a day of service, Anheuser-Busch volunteers painted environmental murals sketched by a local artist with recycled paint from the Green Project.
