Love Our Schools

In 2019, Love Acadiana and the William C. Schumacher Family Foundation partnered together and formed Love Our Schools to put God’s love into action, to restore hope and to inspire change in our schools.

Love Our Schools raised $1.3 million in the community and on August 10th we mobilized over 3,000 volunteers, completed more than 100 service projects in 9 local schools, provided backpacks filled with school supplies for 5,000 students, purchased 5,000 school uniforms, and gave 750 teachers and staff $150 gift cards to purchase classroom supplies.
