What is Love Our Schools?

One of the greatest causes a community can support is the betterment of children’s education and the environment in which it is provided. Inspiration and encouragement for students, teachers, and staff at every school are necessities for ensuring a bright future for our youth.

What began as Love Acadiana’s desire to help local schools with interior and exterior improvements in the summer of 2017 and 2018 has grown into an incredible outpouring of love and support from local and national organizations.

In cooperation with Lafayette Parish School System, Love Acadiana and the William C. Schumacher Family Foundation joined forces in 2019,
renaming the initiative Love Our Schools.

Love Our Schools Day

On Saturday, July 13, thousands of volunteers will revitalize the following eight public schools in Lafayette Parish:

Acadian Middle School
Alice N. Boucher Elementary School
Carencro Heights Elementary School
Carencro High School
J.W. Faulk Elementary School
Lafayette Middle School
LeRosen Preparatory School
Northside High School

Beyond improvements to the schools, nearly 5,000 students will receive backpacks filled with school supplies, and more than 600 teachers, and staff will be gifted with much needed supplies. Created for the purpose of affecting meaningful change, this initiative aims to help foster improved educational outcomes.
