Katrina Help in NOLA

The Dartmouth College student organization Katrina Help (organized through the Tucker Foundation, which aids service-related projects) will be travelling down to New Orleans this December.

Their mission is to help attract more resources to New Orleans communities and help in the more effective allocation of resources, which includes working from the ground in Gentilly to identify neighborhood needs and map neighborhood recovery - in addition to completing short collaborative projects with local government and other non-profit agencies.
