Assess the NeedLIVINGSTON, La. – Livingston Parish Assessor Jeff Taylor, in conjunction with several business donors and community volunteers, will sponsor the 13th consecutive ASSESS the NEED Campaign this summer in an effort to provide school supplies for needy children in Livingston Parish Public Schools for the 2012-2013 school year.

Taylor said the program has once again received monetary donations from several local businesses. The remaining amount of money needed from the program will come from individual donations collected outside the parish Wal-Mart locations and at other participating business locations, he said.


For the first time, volunteers will be located at three Wal-Mart stores – Denham Springs, Walker and Watson – on the weekends of Aug. 4-5 and Aug. 11-12, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. each day, collecting donations and donated supplies for the campaign.

He said more than 250 volunteers from across the parish will assist with this year’s collection and distribution efforts – the most ever in the campaign’s history.
