Give Nola Day was Successful – Thank you!

Give NOLA Day was May 7.  It is a 24-hour long, city-wide campaign by the Greater New Orleans Foundation to raise money for charities in our community.  This year, the total donations for Deutsches Haus were over $18,000!  And the grand total for all the charities put together exceeded $5 million!  Our community was very generous.

Thank you to everyone who donated to Deutsches Haus.   We appreciate all our donors for supporting the Haus.
