Storm Sweep 2023

Hurricane season is on the way, and we intend to be prepared!  This May, work together with us to remove trash and debris around the basin as a part of Storm Sweep. In doing so, our catch basins can adequately route stormwater out of our neighborhoods and our waterways can be litter-free!

To conclude Storm Sweep, PC will be hosting two Storm Aware and Prepare events. Storm Aware and Prepare is a free, family -friendly event providing hurricane information, resources, and coastal restoration education to the community!

Thank you to all who gave on GiveNOLA Day

We want to thank everyone who contributed during this special giving event. We would not be able to continue our meaningful work without the generosity of our amazing donors, constituents, volunteers, and supporters. Thank you.
