Giving back 💙🤲🧡
Students at St. Louis Catholic are encouraged to do service projects and family and consumer science teacher Barbara McHale worked with her class to find a way to put their new cooking skills to use. “I felt we’ve received so much from our community, through the state and even out of state in the means of monetary donations, supplies and labor that it was time for the students to come up with a service project.”
The class settled on serving local animals who have also experienced the effects of post-hurricane life.
Students worked and delivered the treats to Hobo Hotel and Cydi’s Adoption Dogs & Brima Strays. Dharma Brassieur, an 11th grader at SLC, assisted with the delivery of the treats.
Brassieur’s family regularly fosters animals in preparation for their adoption. After her most recent volunteer visit to the Calcasieu Parish Police Jury Animal Services And Adoption Center, she says caring for abandoned animals may be more important than ever now.
