In 1994 Congress passed the King Holiday and Service Act as a tribute to Martin Luther King, Jr.’s dedication to the service of others. The Act encourages Americans to make their communities a better place through volunteerism. In honor of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s legacy, a group of team members from Mouledoux, Bland, Legrand & Brackett took “a day on, not a day off” by observing this National Day of Service with community service at Grace at the Green Light. Together we helped serve breakfast to 146 unhoused community members. The firm will also be setting up quarterly service days this year, when we can volunteer as a group.
Grace at the Green Light recently moved to a larger location at 400 N. Rampart Street with even more community resources for the unhoused population. Their mission remains the same: to provide care for the people who need it the most by providing essentials to not only help New Orleans’ unhoused population, but also to show them there are people out there who do care about them.
Grace at the Green Light is urgently calling for volunteers to serve breakfast through the rest of this week and are always in need of volunteers in general. Interested in volunteering?
