Bossier Parish Schools to ‘Pay It Forward’ By Donating Textbooks to Moore, Oklahoma
When Hurricane Katrina hit in 2005, many evacuated children wound up going to school in Bossier Parish. And a school system in Williamsburg, Virginia came to Bossier’s aid by sending boxes of literature books to alleviate the financial strain.
Now, Bossier schools are doing much the same — sending thousands of no-longer-used reading and math textbooks to the school district in Moore, Oklahoma, which is recovering from last month’s devastating tornado. A Tango Transport truck is making the delivery.
