Good Morning

In response to Louisiana’s historic flood, we have established a Flood Relief Fund to assist families who attend schools that participate in the Louisiana Scholarship Program. Your donation will help families replace school supplies, uniforms, hygiene necessities and other items. Please visit our website to support families impacted by the flood. http://louisiana4children.org/flood-relief-fund/

Enjoy your day. – Paul
