2015-2016 Campaign Kickoff

August 22 - Kickoff at New Orleans Saints Preseason Game

On Saturday August 22, United Way special guests were invited to  “run the flag” at the New Orleans Saints’ pre-season game against the New England Patriots.  100 volunteers were invited to unfurl the American Flag across the field of the Super Dome prior to the National Anthem.

Our Board of Trustee Chairman, Todd Slack, opened our campaign with a kick through the uprights.  Watch him make the kick!

United Way’s HandsOn Volunteer Center is hard at work preparing an incredible 1,000-person day of service at Einstein Charter in New Orleans East on the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina.
