Students at Glen Oaks Park Elementary Need Your Help


Glen Oaks Park Elementary School (GOPES) is a pillar in the North Baton Rouge community, and also serves as the host site for Urban Restoration Enhancement Corporation’s (UREC) 21st Century Learning Initiative. GOPES was completely inundated with water during the recent flooding events in Louisiana. Like so many working to rise from the recent catastrophe, the GOPES family is resilient, and students are ready to return to school next week.

Your immediate in-kind and financial support are needed to help Glen Oaks Park Elementary School have an amazing school year! See below for donation requests.
