Volunteers invited to join graffiti clean-up effort

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - Anyone who is passionate about making the French Quarter graffiti-free is invited to sign up and be a part of a volunteer graffiti clean-up in the French Quarter.

With tools and instructions in hand, volunteers will spread across the Quarter on Saturday, Oct. 10 at and remove as many graffiti marks as possible.

According to a news release Wednesday from organizers, volunteers will receive a work t-shirt (while supplies last), all cleaning products and tools for the cleanup, and are treated to a post clean-up lunch donated by Bourbon Vieux.

The French Quarter Business Association is among the organizations that invites individuals and groups to volunteer in this effort to rid public spaces of unsightly graffiti.

The cleanup will begin with check in at 9 a.m. in the courtyard of the New Orleans Police Departments 8th District at 334 Royal Street. 
The French Quarter Business Association, along with other French Quarter groups, implemented a French Quarter initiative named Vieux Carre Graffiti Abatement Program (VC-GAP) in the summer of 2010.

The event and supplies for the Oct. 10 event are sponsored by the television program "NCIS New Orleans."
