I enjoyed my time volunteering with Mid-city Redevelopment very much. Not only was the staff there very helpful, passionate and informed, they even had a backup plan for us when the weather did not cooperate! We planned to help paint the fence at the historic Magnolia Cemetery but, since it rained, we helped tidy the warehouse and beautify the outside of the building with a little gardening instead. We were able to do things at our own pace, which was nice. The staff was involved and talkative with us, too. I would recommend volunteering with Mid-city Redevelopment to anyone looking to learn more about Baton Rouge and the effort to improve the community.
