KIDS TO THE RESCUE HITS HOME WITH TWO NEW ORLEANS AREA SCHOOLS TAKING THE KIDS TO THE RESCUE™ CHALLENGE
Luling, Louisiana, 1/12/06: After searching the internet to find ways people were coming together to help the survivors of the Hurricane disasters, Maria, a mother of three school-aged children from Luling, LA, approximately 23 miles southwest of New Orleans, came across the Kids To The Rescue™ (KTTR) website. Even though her immediate family was relatively unaffected, she wanted her children and their schools to help the schoolchildren of Southeastern Louisiana who still need a tremendous amount of assistance.
After downloading the “school launch kit” and other poster-making materials from the website, she set out to assist her children in implementing a KTTR collection. Her daughter Rachel, age 7 and son Paul, age10, were the lead “Rescue Kids” for Mimosa Park Elementary (grades 1-3) and Lakewood Elementary (grades 4-6) schools. With the support of their school principals and the help of their mother and other supporters, the KTTR collection proved to be a tremendous success. The children learned a valuable lesson: that many people coming together for a common and very worthwhile goal really can make a difference!
