#RSMBgivesback :: Bring Donations to Enter Giveaways

As with all of our Baton Rouge community events, Red Stick Moms Blog chooses a charity that gives back to our community. This time the selected charity partner is Communities in Schools whose mission and goals focus on surrounding students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life. As moms, we understand that all parents desire an education for their cis-charity
children. We also know full well that the ability to provide does not always sync with the things we want most for our children. To that end, we are asking our guests to donate to this worthy cause whose mission is to empower our youth in Baton Rouge to stay in school and earn their education.

The mission of Communities In Schools is to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life. As the local affiliate of the nation’s largest and most effective dropout prevention network, they do whatever it takes to keep kids on a path toward graduation. No student wants to drop out of school, but they often face seemingly insurmountable obstacles, such as poverty, bullying, trauma, and homelessness.  CIS connects kids with the resources to overcome these obstacles so they can focus on learning and ultimately graduate prepared for a promising future.

Most Needed Items (Where YOU Come IN) ::

  • socks for high school aged boys and girls
  • deodorant for males and females (roll-on/stick kind, NO aerosoles)
  • feminine hygiene pads.

How Can You Help?

We would love it if you would join us in the spirit of giving and contribute from the list above of the most needed items for CIS in our area. In exchange, you receive a raffle ticket for each item you contribute to enter to win some fabulous giveaways (so the more you bring, the higher your chances of winning!). If you would like to learn more about how you can help, please click here.

Ericka P.
Ericka is originally a New Orleans gal who was raised to begin many dishes with a roux. Since 2011, she has happily embraced the Red Stick life with her husband of seven years, Tyler. Although she met her husband at an LSU game after her car broke down, they both attended Northwestern State University where she graduated with a Business Administration degree. After graduation, she and Tyler took a leap of faith and tied the knot. She dabbled in the corporate scene but eventually returned to school to pursue her passion for teaching and earned a Master’s degree in Elementary Education. She taught at an inner-city school in Baton Rouge for 3 years where she gained a family of students and colleagues alike. She’s traded in her beloved Expo pens and clipboard to stay home with her sweet and adventurous one-year-old son, Cullen. She is so grateful for the opportunity to be a part of the sisterhood of fellow moms. Motherhood has been the best roller coaster she’s ever been on and even at the most challenging times, she tries to remember to embrace the chaos and “bless this mess” mentality. Ericka loves a good conversation, coffee, empowering other women {because we can all use a little encouragement}, laughing, baking and making memories with her family.
