The United Way of St. Charles Parish recently held its Victory Celebration to thank its generous donors who helped the organization raise over $2.5 million dollars in its campaign.
I was honored to be recognized as a sponsor of the United Way of St. Charles’s School Backpack Program. This program provides a backpack of non-perishable food items for children to take home over the weekend to provide nutrition and stave off hunger when they cannot receive school provided meals.
The United Way of St. Charles provides funding for agencies that provide assistance in Luling, Destrehan, Ama, Des Allemands, Boutte, St. Rose, New Sarpy, Montz, Norco, Bayou Gauche, and other communities in St. Charles Parish.
