"We Really Can Make a Difference"- Princeton Carter - Wednesday, February 18, 2015

Princeton Carter

            Princeton Carter, at age 14, founded the non-profit My Brother’s Keeper Newman in order to "make the world a better place, one meal at a time.” Princeton was a 2A state champion in 2013 as well as Newman’s number one seed. He has collected over $10,000 in grocery store gift card donations for military families, more than 300 toys/books for the Women’s Mission and over 200 items of clothing for Covenant House residents transitioning back into the job market. Going to school in the downtown New Orleans area Princeton noticed that there were many homeless families and military veterans living under the bridges near the New Orleans Superdome. In an effort to do something to help the homeless, Princeton created "My Brother’s Keeper Newman."  My Brother’s Keeper Newman was created with the mission to help bring hope to the homeless, military veterans, women and children in the New Orleans and surrounding communities who are in need.

            In December 2015, Carter and others from the organization delivered 50 care packages to the Children’s Hospital in New Orleans, Louisiana. The bags contained anything from puzzles and toys, to blankets and notes of encouragement to get the children through their hard times. Isidore Newman student volunteers, thru My Brother’s Keeper Newman, were filling and delivering gift bags full of small gifts to children at New Orleans Children’s Hospital. The mission: "To deliver a smile, one bag at a time.” Princeton is a high school tennis player with an extremely giving heart.
