JOIN THE ROADTRIP FOR RELIEF!!: CLEAN-UP, REPAIR, REBUILD IN THE 9TH WARD WITH COMMON GROUND COLLECTIVE—November 20-27

Leave a comment

Common Ground Collective has called a National Caravan to arrive in New Orleans on November 20th and work over the week of Thanksgiving until November 27th.

What: Common Ground wants 300 volunteers from all around the country to converge in New Orleans with donated funds and building & cleaning supplies. Volunteers will work on a particular section of the 9th Ward picking up yard debris, cleaning the streets, tarping rooftops, etc.

Why: The poor neighborhoods of the city don’t have electricity and are not being cleaned up or repaired, while the French Quarter and other predominantly white areas are relatively clean and quite functional.

Who: We need volunteers with specific skills: electricians, mechanics, plumbers, mold abaters, roofers, construction workers, carpenters, tree workers, lawyers, cooks -and people who can train other volunteers and residents in these skills.

How you can help: Go to New Orleans and work. Donate $$$$. Donate supplies. Help spread the word.

To get plugged-in: Please email sfcaravan@mutualaid.org or call (707) 644-6575
