Relief Workers and Volunteer efforts in New Orleans

Down By the Riverside: A Concert of Thanksgiving was presented by the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation, and co-sponsored by the New Orleans Musicians¹ Union, the New Orleans Musicians’ Clinic, the New Orleans Musicians Hurricane Relief Fund of Preservation Hall and the Tipitina’s Foundation.

On November 26th, 2006, Trombonist Craig Klein and many other New Orleans musical greats played a concert of thanks for the relief workers who have given their blood, sweat, and tears to help out in the recovery of New Orleans. Street Talk reporter George Ingmire interviews individuals involved in the recovery and puts a call out to others to consider helping out. Below are some links to groups that have already established themselves in the New Orleans area.
