March 2nd marks Dr. Seuss’s birthday and the National Education Association’s (NEA) nationwide campaign to get kids excited about reading.
Theodor Seuss Geisel wrote his first children’s book, Cat in the Hat, in 1954 in response to a report that suggested children were having trouble learning to read because their books were boring. With Dr. Seuss’s books and caring adults, millions of children have loved learning to read ever since.
The 17th Annual "Got Gumbo?" Cook-off is in the books. United Way of Southeast Louisiana invited the city’s most talented chefs and first-rate restaurants to put their dishes up against the competition in our annual parade of gumbo in the beautifully renovated Grand Ballroom at the Royal Sonesta Hotel New Orleans.
Tornadoes have caused widespread damage throughout our region, destroying homes and businesses. Long-term recovery and rebuilding takes time, money, and is more than just brick and mortar. United Way of Southeast Louisiana and its supported programs with nonprofit Community Impact Partner Agencies can provide food, clothing, counseling and other services to make people whole.
