Several of our residents organized our second annual school supply drive benefiting children in the foster care system through CASA, Court Appointed Special Advocates of Orleans and Jefferson Parishes. These organizations collect school supplies, year round, for children in need as they are often switching homes and schools, frequently leaving supplies behind in the shuffle. Items included school supplies such as: nap mats, 24-packs of crayons, baby wipes, scissors, composition notebook, dry-erase markers, tissues, glue sticks, construction paper, Elmer’s glue, quart and gallon size Ziploc bags, hand sanitizer, pink erasers, packs of paper, folders, pens of different colors, etc.
