Help Us Provide Books to Schools and Students Affected by Floods


Dear Fellow PTA member,

Thousands of students and many schools have lost books and libraries in the floods. They are in great need of reading materials for this school year.

The Louisiana PTA is holding a book fair to replace books lost in floods and you can help!

There are two ways you can help:

1.  Give books and money. Buy books and ship them directly to the Louisiana PTA office.  We will deliver them to schools and students in need. This option furnishes books directly and 30% of your purchases will provide funds for even more books.
2.  Give money. Buy books for your own use and have them shipped to your home. 30% of your purchases will help buy new books for schools and students in need.
