STPPS Raises More Than $10,000 Each for Addie's Angels, Compassion That Compels
(05-19-2017)

STPPS students, employees and families raised more than $10,000 each for Addie's Angels and Compassion That Compels during their final district-wide fundraiser day of the school year. In April, students and employees were able to wear jeans to school with a donation of $1 or more.

Superintendent Trey Folse presented representatives for Addie's Angels and Compassion That Compels each with a check for $10,742.84 at the May School Board meeting.

Addie’s Angels is a non-profit organization benefitting children who have lost the use of one or more limbs or have limb abnormalities. The organization is named after 7-year-old Addison Gallagher, who was born with Amniotic Band Syndrome (ABS) which prevented the development of her left arm.

Compassion That Compels is a non-profit organization that provides Compassion Bags and emotional support to women battling cancer. For more information on Compassion That Compels, visit www.compassionthatcompels.com.

All four School System fundraisers for the 2016-2017 school year raised a total of $85,621.21 for five local non-profits.

This year, we added a fifth fundraiser. The STPPS Cares campaign was put together in a few days following the devastating flooding this hit surrounding parishes in August 2016. Our School System raised $132,000 as well as more than $200,000 in school supplies, bringing our year-end donation total to $415,621.21 in cash and supplies.
