The Shop’s New MyCommunity Partners for 2020

Here at The Shop at the CAC, not only are we committed to providing a creative and comfortable coworking experience, we are also dedicated to making an impact within the community. Through our MyCommunity Program, we support local non-profit organizations with financial assistance, volunteer opportunities for staff and members, and raised awareness.

Our program allows for members to select an organization when they sign or renew leases. The Shop then donates a percentage of our total annual donation between each organization on a quarterly basis, weighted by member selections.

This year, we are excited to continue working with Son of a Saint and welcome new partners SOUL Nola and Dress for Success for New Orleans. Learn more about these organizations below.

SOUL (Sustaining Our Urban Landscape) is an environmental non-profit dedicated to reducing storm water runoff, pollution, air temperatures, and subsidence and improving community health through the reforestation of New Orleans. SOUL has planted, mapped, and tracked thousands of large, native trees since its inception.
