Many areas of Southeastern Louisiana are still struggling to rebuild from the damage caused byHurricane Ida. In response, Lafayette Parish Public Schools has adopted St. Charles Parish School District and will be holding a two-week donation drive to collect new or gently used school uniforms.
Beginning Friday, October 1, 2021, and continuing until October 15, 2021 parents can send uniform donations with their students to any school in the district or drop them off at the United Way of Acadiana office, located at 215 E. Pinhook Road.
“We know our neighbors are in need, so we wanted to do something to help these families recover from this devastating storm sooner rather than later,” said Superintendent Irma D. Trosclair. “The faster the recovery, the sooner students can return to school and have some sense of normalcy in their everyday lives.”
White uniform shirts are needed in all sizes, as well as shorts and pants in either navy or khaki. In addition to uniforms, LPSS can also accept gift cards to help St. Charles Parish Schools.
Please note: LPSS cannot accept direct financial contributions that is why we are requesting gift cards. Monetary donations should be directed to the St. Charles Public Schools Foundation, Inc. or donated online by visiting www.scpsfoundation.org/donate.html.
