Foundation Makes Donation to New Orleans Recreation Group

The fundraising arm of the recreation department for the city of New Orleans is about to get a donation from a foundation that was started by one of the city's best-known Carnival krewes.

A news release from the mayor's office says the Pro Bono Publico Foundation was set to announce its planned donation Tuesday afternoon. The donation is to be dedicated to youth programs at the city's Taylor Playground in the Hoffman Triangle neighborhood.

The Pro Bono Publico Foundation grew out of a rebuilding project that the Rex organization began after Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
