School District Days of Service
United Way of Northwest Louisiana is dedicated to teaching the importance of giving back. That starts with children.
United Way’s Bossier Day of Service
United Way of NWLA and Bossier Parish Schools have hosted United Way’s Bossier Day of Service since 2015. This event takes place in the fall each year and more than 200 Bossier Parish Schools’ volunteers partner with numerous nonprofit agencies in almost 20 area-wide projects. Worksite projects included painting, letter writing, sorting food and clothing, and deep cleaning.
For example, last year Bossier Elementary School kicked off the action for the two-day, community-wide volunteer event. On Friday, October 21, Bossier Elementary students volunteered with Keep Bossier Beautiful – a local affiliate of Keep America Beautiful for a trash bash.
Students filled multiple trash bags around the school before branching out into the immediate neighborhood. BPSB Superintendent Scott Smith and Bossier Elementary Principal Treska Mitchell also participated with trash bags in hand.
Saturday, October 22, the community initiative continued. Volunteers included students, educators, administrators and parents who pledged to pay it forward by improving the community.
The event engages volunteers, specifically children, and gives them the opportunity to learn about human service needs in Northwest Louisiana.
United Way’s Caddo Day of Service
For the first time, Caddo Parish Schools will host United Way’s Caddo Day of Service in the fall of 2017.
