Day of Deployed Honors CHS Military Alums

CHS Friends and alumni are invited to join with current students, faculty and staff in supporting our young graduates in the schoolí´s first participation in the Day of the Deployed. Today, Tuesday, October 26, CHS is partnering with the national organization, Soldiers Angels (http://www.soldiersangels.org/) a non-profit organization sponsoring this event which is now in its fifth year.

During studentí´s lunch periods (10:17 a.m. – 12:57 p.m.) we will be collecting supplies to be shipped to deployed alums currently serving in Iraq and Afghanistan.  Alums that have returned from active duty will be on hand to answer questions about their deployment and help us to bring more awareness to the brave men and women in uniform. A supply list is available by clicking here or at the CHS Bookstore.

If you are unable to attend our Day of the Deployed and would like to make a difference for the CHS alums currently deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan, you can send a check to the school to be used to purchase supplies. Please make the check payable to Catholic High School and put DAY OF THE DEPLOYED in the memo section of the check. Mail it to 855 Hearthstone Drive, Baton Rouge, LA 70806, with DAY OF THE DEPLOYED on the outside of the envelope also. You can also drop off the check at the Main Office of the school.
