Olivia --

Our work is heating up at Culture Aid NOLA. This June we served 10,291 individuals with groceries, a 5% increase over May. July brings our busiest season- and your support means now more than ever! 

Thanks to an anonymous donor, your gifts are matched this month up to $10,000! Take this opportunity to give when it counts. As we head deeper into hurricane season, and one of our busiest months as we partner for July Supply with Imagine Water Works, you can help us grow our impact. 

Last year we were able to serve 5,248 individuals with 28,470lbs of food and hurricane preparedness supplies with our partners, and we're excited to return for a similar format for 2024. 

Supplies will be available Wednesdays July 3, 10, 17, 24 and 31 at Our Lady Star of the Sea Catholic Church (1835 St Roch) weather permitting.

Items for distribution will vary week by week and include boxes of shelf-stable foods, laundry kits, preparedness checklists and more coming from partnerships with NOLA Ready, Hands On New Orleans, PackHope and Great Places to Work. These events will follow CAN’s no-barrier no-stigma model- providing resources without ever requesting identification or proof of income on a walk-up and drive-up basis.

Work this month was made possible by volunteers from St. Martin De Porres, Entergy, and The Kitchen Guys. 

We're still seeking group and individual volunteers for the summer to serve during the toughest and most crucial months of our year. Join us this month to spend some summer time with CAN. 

Match our volunteers' energy on site this month by making a matched gift to CAN if you can't serve in-person.

Thank you for continuing to support and follow our mission to serve New Orleans families with no-barriers and no-stigma!
