St. Benilde School is committed to ongoing efforts to help the families impacted by the flooding in and around Baton Rouge in August. That is why we have chosen to partner with St. Jeane Vianney, a Catholic elementary school that received water in both the school and neighborhood. Eighty families and thirteen teachers at the school were impacted by the flooding. As a school, we will be adopting these families throughout the school year.
Right now, the families need money to buy cleaning supplies and basic necessities. We will be taking donations on Tuesday and Wednesday of next week at the school. No donation is too large or too small. Please be as generous as you can. The donations will be brought to Mass on Wednesday morning. Any students who bring in a donation will be given extra recess on Thursday as a thank you for their donation.If you do not have children at St. Benilde School but want to help, please drop off or mail your contribution to St. Benilde School, 1801 Division St., Metairie, LA 70001, Attn: St. Jean Vianney.
