Common Ground Relief: Thank You to the Volunteers!

By staff

Big thanks to Common Ground Relief who came out May 23- 26 to help out at 5200 Dauphine! With the volunteers’ help and help from their volunteer leader Sam we were able to create the hurricane panels that will be used at the Sustainability Center for Holy Cross. The panels will protect the windows at the community center in the time of a hurricane evacuation.

Here is some information about Common Ground Relief:

“Common Ground Relief is a volunteer run not for profit organization based in the Lower 9th Ward of New Orleans. We run a diverse range of projects, from New Home Construction, to a Free Legal Clinic, to Wetlands Restoration, Community Gardening and the education of school children about Food Security and Environmental Science with our Garden of Eatin’ Program.

We were founded in immediate aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. To learn more about the organization’s origins, click here.
