After seeing the devastation to the communities in southern Louisiana due to Hurricane Ida, the Weston Wolves baseball team organized a disaster relief supply drive. They encouraged the student body and community to bring bottled water, personal hygiene items, clothing, canned food items, cleaning supplies, and school supplies. Items that were donated were sorted by students at Weston High School
and the Wolves baseball team and will be brought to the West Monroe United Way.
The United Way will get the items to those affected by Hurricane Ida. The Wolves baseball team were not the only students involved with helping out those affected by Hurricane Ida. The Weston High School cheerleaders also packaged individual boxes with personal hygiene items, medical supplies and snacks.
The FBLA students also packaged mop buckets with cleaning supplies. This was headed up by Weston High School student Mattie Claire Beaubouef who is also the State FBLA Reporter. These items were brought to the Louisiana Loggers Association for distribution.
Weston High School would like to thank everyone who sent donations to the school.
