YRNO Wins $37,000 in the Super Service Challenge

Recently, YRNO won $37,000 in the 2015 Super Service Challenge. Founded in 2011 in Indianapolis, The Super Service Challenge’s mission is to promote philanthropic giving and corporate service. Drew Brees and the Brees Dream Foundation brought the Challenge to New Orleans in 2012, and that first year nonprofits around New Orleans received over 1 million dollars from surrounding businesses and corporations, including YRNO. Each year since 2012, YRNO has participated in the Super Service Challenge and benefitted from the Challenge donations.

To enter the Challenge lottery, volunteers can submit videos reflecting on their time serving with YRNO. At the end of each year there is a lottery drawing of all videos submitted with the opportunity to win prizes in various amounts donated by the businesses and corporations involved in the Challenge. The Challenge provides an alternate route for nonprofits to receive funding, without the stress of a long grant application.

YRNO is grateful for the work the Super Service Challenge does to connect businesses with their local nonprofits because it helps companies all over the city reinvest in their community. YRNO looks forward to capturing more volunteers and their experiences serving with YRNO on video and sharing them this coming year in the 2016 Super Service Challenge!
