We've reached the 2,000 pound mark! With the help of Café Reconcile students and other local volunteers, Friends of Lafitte Corridor was able to surpass the 2,000 pound mark for litter picked up since launching our volunteer program in April. Our latest clean-up volunteer day took place on Friday July 3rd. Volunteers started off their holiday weekend on a positive note by giving back to their community through neighborhood beautification. These volunteers arrived early with energy, loaded up on cold water, and set out to brave the New Orleans' summer heat.

Friends of Lafitte Corridor seeks to revitalize the Lafitte Corridor by working to build, program and promote the Lafitte Greenway as a great public space. “I brought my family along with me: my husband, my granddaughters. We come to have a good time,” says Ariska Everette, who’s sitting on a folding chair in front of a giant movie screen on the Lafitte Greenway. There’s a tub of popcorn in her lap.
