1st Lake Properties, Inc. is holding a fundraising drive to benefit Jefferson Dollars for Scholars. The drive is coinciding with the annual Jefferson Dollars for Scholars School Drive and the community-wide Power of Dollar Campaign.
This local, non-profit organization provides college scholarships and summer enrichment camps for students in Jefferson Parish, La., with the belief that if everyone contributes $1, all children in the Jefferson Parish community can attend college.
“We recognize the importance of education and in the investment it has on our future for a growing economy,” says Michele Shane L’Hoste, President of 1st Lake Properties.
As part of its fundraising efforts, 1st Lake asked all of its team members to donate $5 for the opportunity to participate in “Wear Your Jeans to Work” day on Feb. 28.
