Wave of Green - Friday, August 27, 2010

To commemorate the fifth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, Tulane University will blanket the city in a Wave of Green. Faculty, staff and alumni volunteers will assist in recovery efforts at New Orleans City Park and will build homes for Habitat for Humanity. Those who cannot participate on Friday are encouraged to join students who will hold their traditional day of service, Outreach Tulane, the following day.

Parking is available in the Rosen Lot and the Diboll Complex. Volunteers will check in at Wilson Center atrium at 8:15 a.m. Buses will leave from the Rosen Lot to take volunteers to their work sites. Lunch will be provided at both sites. Buses will return volunteers to the Wilson Center at 3 p.m. 

A closing celebration with food and drink will be held near the baseball stadium from 3-5 p.m. Only volunteers are invited to attend the festivities.

City Park volunteers are encouraged to dress appropriately (no open-toed sandals), wear a hat and apply sunscreen and insect repellant.

Habitat for Humanity volunteers need to wear sturdy, closed-toe and closed-heel shoes. Boots and sneakers are both considered appropriate footwear. Volunteers should bring a hat, sunscreen and sunglasses, or a jacket, raincoat and/or rain boots as needed.

We hope to see you there!

Registration for the Wave of Green is now closed. 

All Tulane employee volunteers must print and sign this acknowledgment form and bring it to check in at the Wilson Center.
