On Tuesday, September 6th, a Louisiana Motor Coach bus stuffed with 6,000 backpacks filled with school supplies, will depart New Orleans and head to East Baton Rouge Parish. Saints Punter Thomas Morstead’s What You Give Will Grow Foundation launched Team Comeback Kids immediately after the catastrophic flooding, asking people and organizations to donate school supplies and money for more than 120,000 residents in the affected parishes.

Southwest will take the donations from the reigning queens in all 50 states and deliver them to Louisiana free of charge. Southwest will also accept bulk school supplies from anyone wanting to donate at any Southwest Airlines cargo counter.
While donations and supplies are pouring in, one of the last things on the minds of families who’ve lost everything, is school supplies for their kids.
Saints Punter Thomas Morstead’s What You Give Will Grow Foundation wants to help ease that worry. Some schools in the flooded areas will be open as early as next week, even while many families will still be displaced from their homes.
