Many supporters of the project to restore the building that was home to the United
States' eighth-oldest African-American church, the Wesley United Methodist Church,
and to transform this building into a new hub for New Orleans' Central City, the Wesley
United, a Digital Arts and Training Center for the 21st century, have already contributed
to the project's Adopt-a-Pew and and Adopt-a-Brick programs.
These ﬁrst contributors come from across the United States and from just one block
away (the Early Childhood and Family Learning Foundation in the Mahalia Jackson
Center) along Jackson Avenue. These contributors are helping a city-wide resurgence that
combines long-standing natives' efforts with national and international support. They're
all combining to make a new model of cooperation and creativity for this century.
New Orleans, rich in its mixtures of culture and history, is an especially fertile place for
new seeds and growth in this century.
You can join in contributing funds. You can also volunteer for work at 2517 Jackson
Avenue in New Orleans. You can contribute your skills to our efforts, wherever you are.
You can stage a beneﬁt anywhere. However you wish to contribute, you'll be part of this
important regeneration and part of 21st-century history.
