HAMMOND – Southeastern Louisiana University is postponing the Hispanic Community Service Day originally scheduled tomorrow (May 2) on campus.
The event is designed to bring together university and community resources to provide Hispanic citizens on the north shore with a variety of educational, social service and health opportunities.
Since Southeastern and many of the community partners for the event are currently involved in pandemic planning, “We have all agreed that it would be best to postpone,” said Southeastern President John L. Crain.
“The community service day is an opportunity for us and our partners to provide some very important services for the Hispanic community, such as blood pressure, hearing, vision and glucose screenings for adults and dental screenings for children,” he said. “We want to make certain everyone who wants to participate is able to do so. We will reschedule at a time when all participants can give undivided resources and attention to this important project.”
