VOLUNTEER Graffiti Cleanup

Saturday, November 19th at 10:00 AM

Check-in Jackson Square, St Peter Street Entrance

Volunteer Appreciation Lunch Following at the Bourbon Vieux

All those passionate about making the French Quarter graffiti-free should sign up and be a part of a fun and worthwhile event. There are opportunities as group leaders as well as hands-on workers to participate. Volunteers receive a work t-shirt (while supplies last) and all cleaning products and tools for the cleanup. With the tools and instructions in hand, volunteers spread out through the quarter and remove as many marks as possible. This neighborhood beautification effort is just one of the commitments VC-GAP is making the community.



With this campaign, VC-GAP hopes to eradicate the structures in the French Quarter of the illegal graffiti. The graffiti problem is not as insurmountable as once presumed and VC-GAP is working to help those victimized by offering information and solutions.

It is a real community issue that businesses, activists, residents, and volunteers are willing to face head on. Please join VC-GAP the week of November 15th - 19th in the fight against illegal graffiti and the eradication campaign! (click here for the volunteer flyer -or- agreement form)



To volunteer or donate contact the FQBA office at 504.309.1423 or email graffiti@fqba.org

For more information, please visit our website www.fqba.org. Donations to the effort are also graciously appreciated. Everyone can help!
