ABC Cares

Do you have a project for us to get involved in?

We'd love to hear about it!

Please contact the ABC New Orleans/Bayou Chapter office with ABC Cares project opportunity information.

The ABC New Orleans/Bayou Chapter participates in the ABC Cares Program to encourage our members, students, instructors, and staff to add value to their ABC experience and give back to our community.


ABC New Orleans/Bayou Chapter members & staff participated in "raising the roof" financially & with their construction know-how on a Habitat for Humanity Greater New Orleans Women Build selected family home.

2015 & 2014 ABC Cares Project:

The Special Olympics Summer Games held in May each at Southeastern Louisiana University in Hammond, LA.

2013 ABC Cares Project:

Our Chapter partnered with Toys-for-Tots to sponsor a Toy Drive for local children in need. In an effort to raise money to buy the toys, the ABC New Orleans/Bayou Chapter staff hosted a "Treats for Sale" for our Apprenticeship & Craft Training students by preparing home-baked goodies to offer during the class breaks each evening for a week -- donations from the students and instructors exceeded $400.

We also extended the Toy Drive to our membership, asking them to bring a toy to our annual Member Holiday Party in early December, and we collected three additional boxes of toys from local businesses wishing to participate in this meaningful cause. Once combined, our Chapter donated six "very full" boxes of toys, totaling 158 gifts for delivery to children in need, with the hope of making their Christmas brighter!
