The team here at Youth Rebuilding New Orleans is excited to announce two huge donations! On Tuesday, May 2, while 30 Kenner Discovery Health Sciences Academy students and 12 Miami Dade College students volunteered in Hollygrove and on St. Ann Street, donations rolled in for Give NOLA Day 2017, and YRNO received an incredible donation from Rooms To Go as well.
As part of Rooms To Go’s Covington Store Grand Opening, Rooms To Go donated a portion of opening day sales to Youth Rebuilding New Orleans. On Tuesday, YRNO received the check for $25,000. After the August 2016 flooding, RTG donated hundreds of pieces of furniture to families in need, and YRNO coordinated the distribution and volunteer efforts to distribute those essentials. Thank you, Rooms To Go, for your funding for YRNO and support of our community!
By midnight on May 2, YRNO had received donations from 68 donors, exceeding our goal of reaching 65! In total, over $4,000 was sent our way, with additional funds likely to be added from the Greater New Orleans Foundation. Thank you to all our generous supporters who shared or donated to our campaign!
