MBLB Teams Up With New Orleans Law Firms to Help the Good Times Roll This Mardi Gras Through the Adopt-a-Cop Program

Mouledoux, Bland, Legrand & Brackett is proud to once again team up with many of the city’s prominent law firms to support our community through the LIFT (Lawyer Initiatives for Tomorrow) program. LIFT has raised $21,500 for the New Orleans Police and Justice Foundation’s (NOPJF) Adopt-a-Cop program. The donations support NOPD police officers who work around the clock to make Mardi Gras happen. From shepherding floats through traffic and obstacles, to providing crowd control on parade routes and during the nightly French Quarter after-party, the Krewe in Blue ensures parades roll and everyone enjoys the Mardi Gras revelry.

“We’re proud to join with other New Orleans law firms both to support our policemen and women, and to preserve the important traditions of Carnival,” said Alan G. Brackett, Managing Member.

Contributions will provide more than 900 much-needed hot meals, healthy snacks and beverages for NOPD officers working long days and nights to keep the two-week Carnival season safe and fun for residents and visitors. During prolonged hours of standing on your feet, crowd control, barricade moving, bead retrieving, and helping lost children, a warm meal and a hot coffee can be life changing!

LIFT has partnered with community groups to tackle several cultural and economic challenges over the past three years. As New Orleans became an early pandemic hotspot, the group raised more than $150,000 to feed frontline health care workers and support the city’s food and music industries through the Krewe of Red Beans’ Feed the Frontline NOLA project. The krewe served thousands of meals to health care workers in area hospitals, keeping restaurants in business and hiring out-of-work musicians as delivery drivers. MBLB was honored to participate in this program, too.
