PNOLA Receives Grant from Newman's Own Foundation!

The Phoenix of New Orleans is pleased to announce that it has received a grant of $7500 from Newman’s Own Foundation in support of their efforts to rebuild New Orleans.

With the goal of developing future leadership, Newman's Own Foundation recently partnered with the America East Conference to create the Campus Community Service Challenge, an effort to identify and reward a service-focused student group at each member university that was closely affiliated with a non-profit. PNOLA was chosen by Boston University's Winter Outreach program to be their non-profit beneficiary, and has been awarded an honorable mention award of $7,500! Thank you BU volunteers and Newman's Own!
