The Lafayette Parish School System is partnering with Walmart and Champions for Kids, a non-profit organization focused on giving children the resources they need to thrive, to donate breakfast foods and healthy snacks to less privileged children in the school district as part of it's SIMPLE Giving Program.  The program runs through May 5th in 11 states throughout the country. Champions For Kids will give the school district that collects the most donations $10,000. LPSS has said that it would use the gifted funds to assist with summer programming for youth that qualify for the breakfast items. Be sure to look for the purple donation box at area Walmart stores and help LPSS support those children in need.
