It took more than a day… to Restore Wesley United

Outreach Tulane may only be one day of service, but it is an important springboard for our community partners and students whose impact persists long beyond the work day. Just take a look at the Wesley United Digital Arts and Training Center, one of our long-term Outreach Tulane projects with the United Saints of New Orleans. Repairs made to New Orleans’ 2nd oldest African American church between November of 2009 through January of 2011 have returned this great building to pristine condition. They are well on their way, only sixteen weeks out, from fully re-opening to continue to serve the needs of the Central City neighborhood community. We are proud to have invested over 7,000 volunteer hours over the years through Outreach Tulane and the MLK Day of Service to assist in this effort!

This is particularly appropriate as Central City will be our focus for Outreach Tulane 2012! We will again be partnering with United Saints to work in Central City this year – they will be working with us on the Blight Project. This project involves clearing lots in the region to give a fresh start for rebuilding.

Use Outreach Tulane to spur your passion for action this year and volunteer with us!  Only 20 more days until registration opens! Stay tuned!
