MSF traveled to Donaldsonville, LA for the 1st Annual West Ascension Parish Uniform Distribution event at Donaldsonville High School from 9am to 5pm on August 2nd. In addition to giving out uniforms, 200 care packages tagged with inspirational phrases were given to high school students. The care packages included deodorant, toothbrush, toothpaste, soap, and feminine hygiene products. Blow Pops with the positive messages were also given out to Pre-K through 8th grade students. All of the toothbrushes were very generously donated by Magualie J. Woollery DMD of Contemporary Dentistry in Loganville, GA.
MSF volunteers were among many that came out to support the event. To prepare for the giveaway, our volunteers put together care packages, staged the distribution area, sorted clothing, and organized uniforms. On the day of the affair, our helpers gave away care packages and Blow Pops, and filled uniform orders for the families. Approximately 216 students were helped. Once the event was over, MSF volunteers packed unclaimed uniforms and packages that were later distributed to the individual schools on the west side. MSF Junior Ty James had this to say about the event: “It was weird, even though I helped a few people, I felt like I was helping the whole entire world!”
We are very appreciative of all the help, donations, and support that were received. We would like to thank our MSF volunteers for their time and hard work.
