"Doctors and social workers and school counselors are referring their patients and clients and students to our mutual aid network's phone hotline. This is not a joke. This is the realest thing I will ever write. We need the love we feel for one another to become actions. Fight now for the lives we can save together"
We are in need of the following volunteers:
healthy drivers who can do supply / lunch pick ups and deliveries *URGENT GROWING NEED*
folks to help with laundry for those who have no access
hotline workers to answer the phone
neighborhood coordinators to organize delivery *URGENT GROWING NEED*

We continue to fund raise and your donation is important despite the fact that cities and states are beginning to reopen.
Why is this? New Orleans is a city based on tourism, entertainment and fine dining. While restaurants may begin to reopen, and folks may be called back to work, the customer volume will still be very low for quite some time.
New Orleans culture workers and service industry workers will not be earning anything close to what they need to survive in the coming months. They will need your help more than ever to stay financially afloat while they are no longer able to receive unemployment benefits.
FOOD ASSISTANCE PROGRAM - Our goal is to provide food & supply delivery to at-risk community members. Many of our community members do not have the funds to buy food and supplies, as they are also out of work due to the spread of Covid-19. We aim to provide not only food & supply delivery, but funds to buy them as well for community members in need. We currently deliver to 1000+ community members, and our list of folks needing help is growing exponentially. Your donation will help us reach more people.
We are accepting donations for FOOD ASSISTANCE / SUPPLIES:
Donations of non-perishable food items (canned goods) are also needed:
GNOCC drop-off Location:
2705 S. Broad Ave
New Orleans, LA 70125
Donation drop-off times:
Sundays: 12pm - 4pm
RENTAL ASSISTANCE PROGRAM - The economy of New Orleans is largely based on tourism which has all but disappeared since the spread of Covid-19. Thousands of workers have been left without an income in this difficult time. Although many organizations have popped up that are offering aid, the large majority of this aid is focused on service industry workers (bartenders, servers & gig economy workers). We are fundraising for those workers who don't fit into this category, and who also do not have the financial paperwork or employer references that are required by other organizations that are offering financial rent assistance.
We are NOT accepting donations for RENT ASSISTANCE at this time:
GNOCC is an Unicorporated Non-Profit registered witht he IRS
100% of funds donated to go community members in need
