Special Thank You to Lakeside Jr/Sr High School  Student  Council!

The Student Council of Lakeside Junior/Senior High School in Sibley, LA raised over $2,000 for Cancer Care  this past winter. The students fund-raised in a variety of ways, including hosting a movie day, a ping pong tournament, a bake sale and  a Pink Shirt Day, where students could pay to wear a pink shirt and jeans instead of their school uniform.  We are so grateful for their creativity, their donation and their willingness to help!
