NEW ORLEANS (press release) – The Irish Channel St. Patrick’s Day Club are still hosting a drive-through style event this St. Patrick’s Day where guests are asked to provide a cash or credit card donation to St. Michael Special School, and in return receive a free gift from the children of the school. Unfortunately, kisses for flowers will not be exchanged this year. Before COVID, our annual block party would raise a lot of money for St. Michael’s, but we are trying to do this until in order to continue helping the school.
When: St. Patrick’s Day March 17, 2021 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
What: Drive-Through Donation & A Free Gift for Guests
Where: St. Michael Special School 1522 Chippewa St, New Orleans, LA 70130
Host: Irish Channel St. Patrick’s Day Parade Club & St. Michael Special School
How: Drivers will drive by the front of the school where members of the Irish Channel Parade will accept cash, check, and credit card donations for the school. Gifts from the children will be given to drivers. COVID-safety measures will be in place – including required masks and social distancing.
