MBLB Raises 5,200 Bottles of Water for Grace at the Green Light

Associate Alex Domingue saw a social media post from Grace at the Green Light, an organization which provides assistance to homeless people in New Orlean, asking for bottles of water because their suppliers of water were out of stock. Mouledoux, Bland, Legrand & Brackett’s ProBono Committee jumped into action and set up a water fund drive. The firm exceeded our goal, raising 5,200 bottles of water in three days for Grace at the Green Light.

MBLB attorneys and staff regularly serve our community through Grace At the Green Light. The organization’s mission is to offer New Orleans’ unhoused population choices while providing for their basic needs (water, food, clothing and community) in a loving manner that embraces the human spirit.

Grace at the Greenlight usually distributes 10 cases of bottled water per day with their breakfast program, but due to the salt water intrusion, their water donations came to a halt. As part of its new initiative Hydrate NOLA, the organization is installing 13 hydration stations throughout the city so that everyone in New Orleans, whether they are homeless, tourists, or housed residents, have access to clean drinking water 24/7. This will lead to a more hydrated community, resulting in better health and fewer deaths or medical complications from dehydration.
