Relatives, NDHS raising money for fire victims
By: Howell Dennis
CROWLEY - On Monday night, a home belonging to Kenneth and Jayne Credeur of Crowley was completely gutted by a tragic fire. The Credeurs, whose three teenagers also occupied the house, lost nearly all their belongings.
One thing they didn’t lose, however, was the support of their friends and family.
An account has been established at Evangeline Bank, located at 425 North Avenue G, for anyone wishing to help the Credeurs. The account is under the names Kenny and Jayne Credeur.
Anyone wishing to make a deposit can either visit the bank or simply mail in their contribution.
Notre Dame High School, where two of the Credeur’s children attend school, has also been quick to respond. The school is holding a ‘Jeans Day’ Friday to raise money for the family.
“The students here are allowed to wear jeans to school for a $5 dollar donation.
“We take pride in being a school family,” said Notre Dame’s Louisette Broussard. “We’d like to do anything we can do to help make things easier for them.”
“It’s a chance to exercise our Pio pride.”
