Academy of Our Lady Shares the Love
Academy of Our Lady students decided to “share their love” this Valentine’s day in a different way. Freshman Amanda Eschete suggested that the students prepare bags of candy with a note for the homeless who frequent the Harry Thompson Center in New Orleans. The idea was a hit and students brought in candy and bags to prepare the treats. The people at the Center were delighted to receive such a simple but meaningful gift.
