On Saturday, December 7, the Lafayette Parish School System will host an inaugural coat and uniform drive at the Cajundome.
The event is organized by Alpha Phi Alpha, 100 Black Men of Greater Lafayette, Cintas and the Cajundome.
Gently worn uniforms and coats for students ages four to eighteen will be accepted from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm.
The clothing is being collected for those students in the parish who are in need.
Before being distributed, LPSS says the coats will be cleaned by Cintas.
