The ASCE New Orleans Branch organized a program this summer to match member donations to certain organizations supporting those most affected by COVID-19.
The four organizations include UNO First Student Support Fund, Second Harvest Food Bank, Gayle Benson Community Assitance Fund and the Gig Workers Relief Fund.
Treasurer Kyle Galloway brought the idea to the Branch Board, and they immediately supported it.
“We thought it sounded like a great idea,” Branch President Dean Nicoladis said. “To tell you the truth, everybody has been so affected by this. New Orleans was hit really hard. We wanted to do something charitable and help people out.”
