More than 50 Howard University students joined over 100 Carver High students to clean litter from the Ninth Ward’s Desire Neighborhood

As part of Thrive’s commitment to resiliency for our city and for our vulnerable communities, we welcomed spring break students into our community to remove litter, clean out catch basins, and keep our water draining.

Thrive hosted more than 50 Howard University students into the Ninth Ward’s Desire Neighborhood to serve alongside more than 100 Carver High students for their Spring Break. Clean catch basins are vital to local storm water management, reducing flooding for our community.

Howard University Student Leader Tyrah Lacy share more about the Howard students’ vision in this audio clip. Thanks to these dedicated, visionary students for spending your spring break with Thrive to reduce litter, clean our catch basins, and beautify the Desire neighborhood!
