Local businesses partner for Pitch In! Lafourche School Supply Drive
Vision Communications recently announced a partnership with local retailers Callais Office Supply and Wal-Mart to help collect the most needed school supplies for the Lafourche Parish Public Schools’ upcoming school year. Since 2010, Vision Communications and Callais Office Supply have donated cases of copy paper to local schools in an effort to assist with the shortage of paper for teachers. This year an additional school supplies fundraiser has also been established with the added assistance of the Wal-Mart locations in Galliano and Mathews.
Vision Employees will be on-site collecting school supplies at the following times and locations:
• Galliano Wal-Mart: July 25, 26, Aug. 8 and 9 from 1 - 7 p.m. and August 10 from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m.
• Callais Office Supply: August 1 from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.
• Mathews Wal-Mart: August 2 from 1 - 7 p.m. and August 3 from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.
The following school supplies are being collected at the Pitch In! Lafourche locations: ink pens (blue or black), #2 pencils, loose leaf paper (wide rule), 3-ring binders (1 or 1.5 inch), copy paper, dry erase markers, erasers & cleaner spray, 1 or 3 subject compositions, Germ-X, clear or mesh school bags, journals (marbled cover), sticky note pads, note cards (small & large), solid white polo shirts (s-XXL), Kleenex, USB flash drives, belts (solid black or brown) and staples.
“We are so fortunate, in Lafourche Parish, to have partners, such as, Vision Communications, Callais Office Supply, and Wal-mart who are very generous with their time and resources to provide much needed supplies for the teachers and students in our school district,” Superintendent Jo Ann Matthews said.
