Twenty-four students from Natchitoches Central delivered food, blankets, toiletries, coats, towels and wash clothes, hygiene kits, laundry detergent, and other items to HOPE Connections Homeless Day Shelter and Christian Service Hospitality House in Shreveport on Dec. 13 as part of their English class’s service learning project. To date, this was the single largest donation of goods made to HOPE Connections. Students handed out items and Christmas cards while talking to clients and listening to their stories and, in some cases, their advice. The trip was a success all the way around and provided students with the opportunity to donate not only material items but also their time to a most worthy cause.
