Archbishop Shaw

Yesterday we had a group of freshmen from Archbishop Shaw High School in Marrero volunteering at our South Salcedo work site, which is almost finished. Led by Brother Adam Dupre and basketball coach John Quilter, the guys leveled the yard and put down sod with military-like precision. Check out the video and pictures below!
