Major Mob Meeting March 8th

Get ready for the Great American Clean-Up Day,
co-hosted by the good people of the Friends of Lafitte Corridor and
NOLA Trash Mob.

On Sunday 8 March, community service organizations will come together across from the U.S. Post Office on Bayou St. John (501 N Jefferson Davis Pkwy) at 9:30am for coffee and pastries compliments of Mid-City Market!

This will be a major Trash Mob event. It’s an offer you can’t refuse.

The event will start with background information and tips on how to be safe when picking up litter. Around 10am, participants will split up into small teams and focus on areas adjacent to the Lafitte Greenway. The clean-up should last for about two hours. When the mission is complete, the group will gather together to take some pictures in front of the trash collected.

In addition to FOLC and NOLA Trash Mob, the University of Georgia’s IMPACT program will join the mob at 9:30 a.m. on March 8th where Bayou St. John meets Jefferson Davis Parkway. This should be a fun trash mob that makes a big difference.

Some supplies, including bags for trash and recycling and gloves will be provided. A limited number of grabbers and orange vests will be available for those who want them. Please feel free to bring your own supplies. Bringing your own supp that would be most awesome and sincerely appreciated.

Please join the fun at 9:30 on Sunday, March 8th where Jefferson Davis Parkway meets Bayou St. John!
