Catching-Beads-for-a-Cause



From Mardi Gras to St. Patrick’s Day, the divas love a good parade!  We are especially excited for the Irish Channel Parade on Saturday, March 14th. The parade route passes in front of Trashy Diva Boutiques on Magazine Street!    



Trashy Diva is catching beads for a cause! This year, we’re teaming up with the Arc of New Orleans to support their Mardi Gras Recycling Center.  When the carnival season and St. Patrick’s Day celebrations are over, Arc of Greater New Orleans is still celebrating! The organization receives donations of beads and throws from area residents that are then sorted, packaged, and sold to float riders in 30-pound crawfish sacks.




Arc of Greater New Orleans has been an integral part of the New Orleans area community since 1953, offering support and critical services to the area’s children, adults, and their families. An extremely determined gathering of parents organized and implemented an action plan as a means of helping each other and their intellectually disabled children. Slowly, limited education services were initiated with the determination of parents-volunteers leading the efforts.

Now known as Arc of Greater New Orleans, the organization and its services have flourished over the years to now serving some 1000 children and adults in Jefferson, Orleans and St. Bernard Parishes. Arc provides various services throughout the entire community including Early Intervention, Family Services Coordination, Respite, Personal Care, Employment/Habilitation and Supported Living assistance.  



In April, Trashy Diva employees will continue the celebration with the Arc of New Orleans by volunteering at The Mardi Gras Recycling Center. The Divas will help the organization by sorting Mardi Gras beads by length, size, and color.
