2022 Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr Day of Service

The Lower 9th Ward Homeownership Association partnered with SOUL, L9NA, Leona Tate Foundation for Change, AETNA, and CORE to facilitate a 3-hour service project to honor and commemorate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. `170 volunteers came from businesses and organizations to plant 60 trees and pick up 72 bags of trash. Photographer, Michael Luttrell took photos of the event and CORE provided COVID testing for participating volunteers.  AETNA provided snacks and beverages for breakfast and lunch.  We received positive feedback from all participants.  Many participants signed up for the neighborhood’s newsletter and offered to volunteer during future projects.
