Twelve teams will boil up more than 900 pounds of crawfish for guests to enjoy.  “Rebuilding Together New Orleans (RTNO) was founded in 1988. Our goal is to improve the quality of life of low-income homeowners, particularly those who are elderly, disabled, veterans, or single head of households with minor children.” (Website).  In 2019 the very first annual Build And Boil Block Party helped six homeowners within New Orleans. This year the group hopes to help even more.

Rebuilding Together New Orleans is committed to holding a safe event that meets all potential city and state COVID-19 restrictions. Given the fluid and frequent changes to these guidelines, if we are unable to gather as planned, the boil portion of the event will be reformatted as a drive-thru with limited boil team space. In accordance with Rebuilding Together’s volunteer guidelines, all project sites will be capped at 10 volunteers.

All event-goes should review the safety information (left) before registering a team or participating.

We have taken enhanced health and safety measures for the protection of our staff, homeowners, and volunteers. An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. Those who do not comply with posted health and safety measures will be asked to leave.
