The flood waters have receded in Louisiana, but the needs haven’t, and Texas Panhandle 4-H’ers are answering a call for school supplies. Louisiana 4-H put out a call in August to all its southern counterparts, saying, “many school-aged youth were in the midst of planning for their school year when the flooding occurred,” and have since spent time cleaning their homes and rebuilding their lives.
Support for the Louisiana flood victims through the collection of school supplies has included 1,787 youth and adult workers contributing 1,483 volunteer hours to collect $4,379 in donations and care packages valued at more than $5,500. He said 375 large bundles have been collected for shipment so far. The project will ended on Oct. 31.
