Please join ASC staff and ARIZONA CHEMICAL as we give back to the community of New Orleans!
Monday April 18th from 8am until 2pm.
Monday's 'ASC GIVES BACK' Community Service Project is in partnership with 'HandsOn New Orleans'. We'll be helping a charter school by repainting their classrooms and beautify the grounds so that they can re-open in the fall to receive students. More details below...

and help us show New Orleans how the Adhesive & Sealant industry comes together to serve the communities we visit!
For those that cannot make the Monday arrival, we will likely have a second community service project onsite at the conventions. More information to follow in convention email updates.
Einstein Charter School
Located just 20 minutes from downtown in the New Orleans East neighborhood, the mission of Einstein Charter School is to promote academic excellence in teaching and learning through the integration of mathematics and science in interdisciplinary curricula and to promote the ideals and habits of lifelong learning among all stakeholders.
Einstein Charter is an open admission, tuition-free Pre-Kindergarten through 8th grade school that operates three campuses which serve 909 students ages 4-14 years old. The student body reflects the diversity of New Orleans East (59% African American, 23% Asian, 17% Hispanic, 1% Caucasian) and services are offered in English, Spanish, and Vietnamese. 91% of students qualify for free or reduced lunch. A majority also qualify for the free dinner meal program.
Twice in recent years, Einstein Charter Schools has managed to turn a failing public school into a successful place of learning for their students. After inheriting two F grade schools since Katrina, Einstein has been able to take them to a B performance grade in only a single school year each. Their newest campus, Sarah Towles Reed High School, is the chance to benefit even more children by vastly increasing their access to a quality public education in New Orleans. Volunteers are a critical part in preparing the school building and campus for this important next step!
What We Will be Doing:
- Indoor classroom painting throughout entire high-school
- Library renovation work including painting, installing shelves and new carpeting
- Light construction projects, as part of a new Outdoor Teaching Garden
- Refurbishing old basketball courts with new goal posts, repainting court lines, school logos
- Landscaping, tree-planting and beautification projects throughout the entire campus!
