and give back

Did you receive light bulbs from us? Are you a resident of New Orleans, and looking for a way to have a positive impact on your community?  Grab a friend or 50, and come on out to install light bulbs with us!  We offer year-round volunteer opportunities 6 days a week, Monday through Saturday.  You can choose to volunteer a full or half day, and times are always flexible.  Please note that, as a safety precaution, no volunteers are ever sent out alone.  If you’d like to volunteer by yourself, we are always in need of help in the office, and are particularly in need of folks with skills in website design & management, graphic design, and fundraising.  No matter how you choose to volunteer with us, you can have a direct positive impact on our community.  We look forward to meeting you!
