Belle Chasse kids make donation to LASPCA

In October 2020, these four wonderful young ladies wanted to do something for their community. They are all lovers of pets, so they decided to raise money for the Plaquemines SPCA. They held a bake sale and bracelet sale to raise money for animals that desperately need it. They spent all day in the neighborhood asking to support a great cause. They raised $500 and were very excited to go and donate the money they raised and see some of the animals that are awaiting adoption. Pictured with a SPCA employee, from left, is Emma Raiford, Amelia Gettle, Ella Raiford, and Skye Panepinto.
