DET is known for its continuous work in the community. Founded by “DJ Ro” Watts and Lajoan Williams, the non-profit organization has extended countless hours assisting members of the community, particularly the Lower Ninth Ward, as well as mentoring youth through volunteerism and the Arts. This year they are joined by Cajun Seafood, Xpress Vinyl, AETNA, The New Nena, Free World ENT, and BAR NONE By Design, along with other community based businesses and sponsors. Their goal is to ensure the less fortunate are able to enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday with as little financial stress as possible. Mr. Watts and Ms. Williams are well-known for freely giving to others in the most impactful of ways. This year’s event will be held at 1123 Lamanche Street (corner of Lamanche and St. Claude) from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Recipients must have a valid Louisiana I.D.
