New Orleans Citywide Service Day
I refuse to call this Saturday an “anniversary”.
It’s been 10 years since Hurricane Katrina. We have survived. Some have thrived.
But the word anniversary, to me, implies a celebration, and remembering the losses suffered by New Orleans and the Gulf Coast should never be cause for celebration.
However, if there’s one thing that the city is getting right this week, it’s giving residents the opportunity to be of service to their communities through a volunteer day.
From landscaping to litter pick up to painting to canvassing neighborhoods with the New Orleans Fire Department to help install smoke detectors, there’s something that fits your skill level.
We’ve had folks from all over the world come into our city to volunteer over the years.
Take one day and be a volunteer yourself.
This is our city and we should always be proud to call New Orleans home.
