On behalf of the Board and staff of Bayou Land Families Helping Families, we want to send our thanks and sincerest appreciation to Ms. Shelby Nelson, a senior at Destrehan High School. Shelby chose as her senior project to organize an event, the proceeds of which she would donate to Bayou Land. She called it “Autism Day of Play” and her efforts resulted in a very well-organized event which was enjoyed by many (children and adults alike) and generated a donation in the amount of $2,159.59. Shelby’s efforts reflect a depth of character of which her parents and her community should be proud. So, thank you Shelby. Your work will result in a better world for children with disabilities and their families. What an outstanding contribution to our world!!
