NCHS JROTC Alpha Company to hold School Supply Drive to benefit New Orleans school affected by Hurricane Ida

Hurricane Ida heavily affected the South, and while Natchitoches didn’t get much backlash, Parishes down south such as New Orleans were heavily affected by the storm. Many schools are just now getting power back and have lost all their resources.

Each semester the Natchitoches Central High School JROTC companies have to plan and execute a Community Service Project. For Alpha Company’s community service this semester we have decided to adopt Fannie C. Williams Charter School in New Orleans, LA to provide supplies they have lost in the hurricane.

With your help, the NCHS JROTC Alpha Company would like to make their transition back into learning as smooth as possible. Any donations or monetary gifts to help ship supplies are accepted and greatly appreciated!

We will be hosting a city wide supply drive where the community can get involved and donate supplies to help our cause. This two-day drive will take place at the MLK Recreation Center on Friday, Oct. 1 from 5-7pm and Saturday, Oct. 2 from 8am-2pm. Whether it’s a pack of pencil or one notebook, the NCHS JROTC will be appreciative and so will those students at Fannie C. Williams Charter School!
