We Were able to provide Hurricane Ida Relief Giveaways at Thrive 9 Community Center in the Upper Ninth Ward.
Thanks to the tremendous outpouring of donations and our hard-working volunteers, we were able to serve over 800 families impacted by Hurricane Ida.
Families were provided with tarps, water, diapers, non-perishable food items, clothing, toiletries, feminine products and cleaning supplies.
We are so very grateful to our local partners and those who traveled from across the country to offer their hands-on help to a storm-ravaged community in need.
