Hello Lab Family!! The PTO is mobilizing at the school to help our students and faculty in need! We will be at the school today & tomorrow from 12:00pm - 3:00pm collecting donations of basic needs, school supplies and school uniforms. If current Lab families have gently used uniforms, please drop off at the school. Southern University Systems Foundation is uploading a web portal to accept donations. 100% of funds will help our Lab Family. If you have any questions, suggestions, please see link, and/or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our thoughts and prayers are with those families who have been touched by the devastating flooding in our city. Over 20,000 people have been rescued, 12,000 remain in shelters and thousands are left without power. Due to the tremendous and widespread impact of recent inclement weather and flooding in the area, the federal government has declared a major disaster in Louisiana. We have many families of the Lab who are in need. Please help us support them during their transition back to normalcy. Your donation will help replenish school supplies, uniforms and basic needs. Our hearts go out to all of our Southern Lab families. Please help us show strength for those us who have been touched by this devastation.
