Louisiana Kids Back To Learning Thanks to Crayola






hammond_img_20161021_023649When the rain began less than a week after the school year had started the concern was first for the students and staff that were impacted directly, and then to surveying the damage to a number of schools throughout the district. Students had only just brought their supplies to school when many were washed away. The district has a poverty rate of 76%, which means that many parents have difficulty purchasing school supplies to begin with. To bring some normalcy back to the hammond_img_20161021_023900children, the 1300 kids displaced because of the impact of the flood to their school were sent to other schools within the district. Thanks to the donation of Crayola through Good360, schools that welcomed additional students like Hammond Westside Montessori were able to provide all children with these school basics.
