With Lafourche Parish in need, our neighbors to the west have come through with some much-needed relief.
The Vermilion Parish School District announced today that it has raised $33,116.10, which it will donate to the Lafourche Parish School District.
Vermilion Schools started its Lafourche Parish Hurricane Drive weeks ago. The district did collections at sporting events and also hosted individual campus fundraisers, which added up to the sizable sum that will be given back to our area.
"A great big thank you to all of our Vermilion Parish students, teachers and residents who took part in Vermilion's efforts to help out a district affected by Hurricane Ida," the district said.
Of the money raised, $27,736.10 is cash and checks and $5,380.00 are gift card donations.
