Prior to Themis’ official incorporation, the Facebook group had begun community outreach to several local schools who also cut ties with the offending parade organization. Realizing the schools would be financially compromised by taking a moral stance, a fundraiser was held. Over $16,000 was collected and distributed amongst six schools. The krewe’s donations also gained the attention of Gambit Magazine, earning their “thumbs up” for September 14, 2020.
The Krewe of Themis was invited by the Audubon Institute to transform the front entrance of the Audubon Zoo with beautifully hand-crafted flowers from recyclable and sustainable materials, exhibiting the theme “Be Kind to Every Kind”.
On July 6, 2021, the krewe donated “Member Late Fees” to the First 72+ presenting its inaugural "Fees for Philanthropy”. Our Titanesses believe that a krewe can be "more than Mardi Gras," and have earned the moniker “Krewe for Good.”
During September 2021, Hurricane Ida bore down on the Gulf Coast, particularly the bayou parishes of Louisiana. Following this, the Krewe of Themis sprung into action. Our first trip down the bayou was made in conjunction with NOLA Wood Windows. With the generosity of our members and supporters, we were able to help hundreds of families in Terrebonne and Lafourche parishes with much needed supplies. But we didn't stop there. A second trip was made in which large pizzas, $100 grocery store gift cards, and cash, the latter of which was donated by Terrebonne Councilmember Dirk Guidry, were distributed to over 60 families. This earned the krewe their second "thumbs up" from Gambit.
