Killian Helipad: The team partnered with the Town of Killian, by assisting with the efforts to fulfill the need for a helicopter landing pad to be used for emergency operations, including increased accidents and medical emergencies during the summer months when Killian population quadruples and natural disasters, such as floods and hurricanes hit Livingston Parish.
Shoes for Students: Heart & Sole learned that students were attending school with shoes that were worn out, too big, too small or improper fit. The team responded by coordinating a shoe drive and effort which resulted in 155 pairs of shoes being delivered to 155 students attending 17 schools in the parish.
