LAROSE, LA - Throughout summer break, our local community "pitched in" generous support for school children. We're talking about an incredible act of generosity. This community gave thousands in donations, hours of volunteer work, and even more in value than we can measure.
In partnership with Walmart, the Mathews and Galliano locations, Vision Communications presented Lafourche Parish Public School System with supplies and donations totaling over $3,300. The more detailed breakdown is $550 collected as cash gifts and more than $2,700 in actual school supplies.
This year marks Vision Communication's Third Annual "Pitch In Campaign." Over $15,600 in cash donations and school supplies collected in total. The goal steady increases as the active community leads the way in effort to help their students excel.
“We're amazed at the support we receive from Vision and our community. With continued federal and state cuts, these donations help our students achieve their goals. Our students and staff are very appreciative of the school supplies collected for our schools,” said Jo Ann Matthews, Lafourche Parish School District Superintendent.
Peter Louviere, Vision's Chief Financial Officer, discussed the importance behind pitching in, “As a member of the communities in which we serve, we are proud to support our regional schools. We thank our community and corporate partners for their generosity. For our students to be successful, they must have the fundamental resources needed to support their education in the classroom.”
