The 2018 NOLA Foundation and the Tricentennial Commission Community Engagement Committee in partnership with United Way of Southeast Louisiana, HandsOn New Orleans and Network Volunteers is launching the city’s year long Tricentennial Volunteer Challenge, 300,000 for the Next 300.
The 300,000 for the Next 300 volunteer challenge will honor the work of Martin Luther King Jr., Rosa Keller, Edith Stern and countless other civil rights activists by making improvements to schools and community buildings and spaces. This challenge aims to engage residents and tourists to accumulate 300,000 hours of service through 300 unique volunteer projects over the course of 2018. The public can select from these projects and register online to participate. All projects chosen will focus on addressing issues of equity, resilience and public safety. Upon successful completion of the challenge the projects chosen will provide an estimated community impact of $7.2 million.
Please join us at the kick-off event, as well as the first volunteer project, on SATURDAY JANUARY 13, 2018 AT 9:00 A.M. TO NOON at Hoffman Prep Head Start, 2622 S. Prieur St., New Orleans, LA. The event will be the official kick-off as well as the first volunteer clean-up project at Hoffman Prep Head Start.
