EKAM New Orleans Project : Provide food & support for homeless shelters in New Orleans
  1. A growing number of homeless people in New Orleans were lacking necessary food and supplies, especially due to the effects of Covid-19. The immediate need for food increased by more than 40%. Therefore, the EYA of New Orleans created a goal of $1000 to support the New Orleans Mission Homeless Shelter and the Second Harvest Food Bank.
  2. Every member of the New Orleans EKAM youth group raised money through this Caring crowd online fundraiser as well as collected food donations. Local food drives were organized where neighbors can donate canned goods.
  3. Outcome: $1,260 was raised by our EYA and was given to the New Orleans Mission Homeless Shelter and Second Harvest Food Bank. All the canned goods collected were successfully delivered to the Second Harvest Food Bank.
