April 16, 2013, New Orleans, LA - All those passionate about making the French Quarter graffiti-free should sign up and be a part of this fun and worthwhile event. There are opportunities as group leaders as well as hands-on workers to participate. With the tools and instructions in hand, volunteers spread out through the quarter and remove as many graffiti marks as possible. Volunteers receive a work t-shirt (while supplies last), all cleaning products and tools for the cleanup, and are treated post cleanup French Quarter lunch provided by Creole Cuisine.


This weekend the FQBA and VC-GAP invite individuals and groups to volunteer on Saturday, April 20th, 2013 to help rid public spaces of unsightly graffiti that has accumulated. The cleanup will begin with check in at 9 am in the courtyard of the New Orleans Police Departments 8th District, 334 Royal Street. Register online at www.fqba.org as an individual or group.  

 

The French Quarter Business Association (FQBA), along with other prominent French Quarter groups implemented a French Quarter initiative named Vieux Carre Graffiti Abatement Program or VC-GAP in the summer of 2010.VC-GAP hopes to eradicate the structures in the French Quarter of the illegal graffiti. The graffiti problem is not as insurmountable as once presumed and VC-GAP is working to help those victimized by offering information and solutions.This neighborhood beautification effort is just one of the commitments VC-GAP is making the community.    

 

Graffiti is a real community issue that businesses, activists, residents, and volunteers are willing to face head on. Please join VC-GAP in the fight against illegal graffiti and the eradication campaign!

 To volunteer or donate contact the FQBA office at 504.309.1423 or email graffiti@fqba.org

For more information, please visit our website www.fqba.org. Donations to the effort are also graciously appreciated. Everyone can help!
