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.

Academy freshmen Jasmine Palmisano, Emily Bussen, Assistant Director, Academy freshmen Amanda Eschete, and Sarah Mcilvried, Jesuit Volunteer and Director of the Center.
