More than 600 Tulane staffers from the New Orleans, North Shore and Mississippi campuses volunteered across the region to help local nonprofits for the Wave of Green Day of Service. Tulanians spent their morning spreading mulch, packing food, sorting Mardi Gras beads and sprucing up a school Thursday during the annual event.
