LAFAYETTE, La. – What began as Love Acadiana’s desire to help local schools with interior and exterior improvements in the summer of 2017 has grown into an incredible outpouring of love and support from local and national organizations. Following the success of Serve Day 2018, Love Acadiana and the William C. Schumacher Family Foundation joined forces in 2019 and have renamed the initiative “Love Our Schools,” in cooperation with Lafayette Parish School System.
On Saturday, July 13, thousands of volunteers will join together to revitalize the following eight public schools in Lafayette Parish:
· Acadian Middle School
· Alice N. Boucher Elementary School
· Carencro Heights Elementary School
· Carencro High School
· J.W. Faulk Elementary School
· Lafayette Middle School
· LeRosen Preparatory School
· Northside High School
Beyond improvements to the schools, nearly 5,000 students will receive backpacks filled with school supplies, and over 600 teachers and staff members will be gifted with much needed supplies.
