VERB is an initiative to make serving simple in our community and around the world. To this end, we partner with exemplary nonprofits in New Orleans, providing volunteer opportunities, donation collections, and financial resources. Our hope is as people participate in these events, they will start to see service as less than an event and as more of a lifestyle.
We recognize there are many different types of needs in our community. However, in order to maximize our impact, we’ve chosen to narrow the scope of our efforts. Therefore we work with a select group of community partners that we believe are doing extraordinary work in New Orleans.
