Donations of baby formula, diapers, wipes, pull-ups, and bottled water collected by St. Mary’s Dominican High School students will support families with babies and young children in the Lake Charles community that is recovering from Hurricane Laura. The donations will be given to the Louisiana Right to Life office that will deliver them to the community. On August 27th, Hurricane Laura made landfall in southwest Louisiana as a Category 4 and caused extensive damage in Lake Charles.
Assisting the school’s Office of Dominican Catholic Identity, Student Council members helped collect donations during a one-week drive with grades 8th through 12th competing in the class Color Challenge. The 8th Grade won the challenge, with seniors in second place, and freshmen taking third place.
