Back to School drive goes down this Saturday
August 13 is the first official start date for students in Calcasieu parish and while the students probably don't feel like they have had much of a summer. It's time to get back to the books and we try to get things back to normal. There were many students who were basically homeschooled last year due to the COVID pandemic, but the doors are opening back up and a majority if not all students will be back in the classroom.
This Saturday there will be a Back to School supply drive at the Lake Charles Civic Cener. This is going to be a drive-thru event and they will be handing out Free School Supplies, backpacks, pens, paper and more. If you have a student who will be going back to school this year. Allow this organization to assist and help you get a pretty start.
Everything kicks off at 3 p.m. and will be there until everything is gone. While weather conditions are still up in the air on how much rain we may or may not get. The event is still going on and I will have any updates if things change. Bring the kids out for fun and lets get them back and ready to get back to school this Saturday at the Lake Charles Civic Center 900 Lakeshore Drive.
