MSF traveled to Donaldsonville, LA for the Back to School Supply Drive held at the local Wal-Mart. The drive was hosted by Volunteer Ascension. The organization collects school supplies and uniforms for students of low income families that attend school in Ascension Parish.
MSF volunteers Steven and Javela Singleton attended the drive along with MSF President, Shannon Singleton. The event was from 8am until Noon. Many customers bought items on the school supply list or donated money. MSF chipped in by purchasing $280 worth of school supplies.
“The drive was a big success. I am grateful I had the opportunity to help out in my home town,” stated Shannon.
The supplies will be distributed to students once classes are back in session. MSF will be back in Donaldsonville for the uniform distribution event on August 2nd.
