What: The Love Our Schools initiative is being moved to SATURDAY, AUGUST 10 as a result of Tropical Storm Barry that is expected to impact Acadiana in the coming days.

All existing volunteers who are already signed up will be automatically transitioned to the new August 10th date.  If existing volunteers wish to make a change to their assignment, they can access their sign-up account through the email confirmation they originally received.

About 50 volunteers from different nonprofits, businesses and communities spent their Tuesday packing 5,000 backpacks with school supplies as part of the Love Our Schools initiative that will benefit eight Lafayette Parish schools.

Inside the Lafayette Parish School System's warehouse, the group stood in assembly lines on either side of a long string of tables full of boxes of pencils, Elmer's glue, composition notebooks and Expo markers.
