Lafayette & East Baton Rouge Parish Programs for Homeless Students
LANTEC is partnering with the Lafayette & East Baton Rouge Parish School Programs for Homeless Students. There are hundreds of students in each district that are homeless through no fault of their own. That includes children displaced by Harvey and Maria (including Puerto Rico residents), those who are residing in shelters, hotels/motels, cars/public spaces, as well as children who are in a doubled up situation due to loss of housing (eviction, fire, foreclosure). The school system provides educational resources, but their basic needs are not always met. Our goal is to provide hygiene kits to pass on to these students.
These kits can include:
- Shaving Cream
- Feminine Products
The drop-off deadline for any donated items is December 15, 2017.
Items can be dropped off at either LANTEC location (Baton Rouge & Lafayette).
