The 2018 NOLA Foundation and the Tricentennial Commission Community Engagement Committee in partnership with Entergy Corporation, United Way of Southeast Louisiana, HandsOn New Orleans and Network Volunteers is launching the city’s year long Tricentennial Volunteer Challenge, 300,000 for the Next 300.
The 300,000 for the Next 300 volunteer challenge presented by Entergy Corporation will honor the work of A.P. Tureaud, Jerome Smith, Rudolph Lombard, Oretha Castle Haley and countless other civil rights activists by making improvements to schools and community buildings and spaces. This challenge aims to engage residents and tourists to accumulate 300,000 hours of service through 300 unique volunteer projects over the course of 2018. The public can select from these projects and register online to participate. Upon successful completion of the challenge the projects chosen will provide an estimated community impact of $7.2 million.
