The Kiwanis Club of Broussard- Youngsville has partnered with the Gifting Grace Project to help collect items for the “Pack the Backpack” Drive. 

The Pack the Backpack Drive aims to help 500 homeless children in the area get the school supplies that they need for the upcoming school year. 

Did you know that the Lafayette Parish School System ended its 2020-2021 school year with 1352 students enrolled in their homeless program? And that is only in Lafayette Parish! We have such a need in our community and this is a great way to give back and do something good for other people.
