Service organizations organize school supply drive


Service organizations in the City of Natchitoches have banded together in an effort to make sure elementary school children in our parish have the school supplies they need to thrive this year.
The Kiwanis Club, A+ Coalition and Lion’s Club have put together a school supply registry on Amazon ( for community members to buy much needed supplies and send them directly to the Natchitoches Parish Library where club members will organize and deliver them to all nine elementary schools in Natchitoches Parish.
Not tech savvy or prefer to shop local? Fantastic! Below is a list of the top five requested supplies for all nine schools as well as drop off locations:
* Clear or Mesh Backpacks
* 2-inch, three ring binders
* Composition notebooks
* Ticonderoga pencils
* Kleenex/Paper towels
* 24 Packs of crayons (Crayola)
* Glue (liquid or stick)
* Highlighters
* Black dry erase markers
* Notebook paper
Drop off locations are:
•BOM – Keyser Avenue, University Parkway, and Washington Street
•City Bank – St. Denis, and Keyser Avenue
•Natchitoches Parish Library- 450 Second St.
•Waskom and Brown – 816 University Parkway
