The Ascension Parish School Board recognized Volunteer Ascension for their commitment to community and school service at its Aug. 19 the Ascension Parish Courthouse Annex in Gonzales.

The board honored Volunteer Ascension by passing a resolution commending them for their recent efforts through the Stuff the Bus campaign. For six years, Volunteer Ascension and WBRZ Channel 2 have partnered in the Stuff the Bus event in Ascension Parish, and this year’s event, which took place in July, raised nearly $40,000 worth of school supplies and coordinated some 200 volunteers in the effort.
