Acadiana United was formed by Adam Aucoin, a young man from Lafayette who organized a rally in Lafayette last month to raise funds for local law enforcement and to promote unity among communities in Acadiana.

Aucoin and Acadiana United will host events every six months to help those in need in Acadiana and to recognize the good in people. The organization's next project is a school supply drive for JW Faulk Elementary. The goal is to help both students and teachers save money on school supplies.

Donation stations have been set up at Ansley Walk, Robley Place, and Main Street apartments in River Ranch. The drive will end on Thursday, August 11 so that supplies can be delivered to JW Faulk on Friday. Visit Acadiana United on Facebook for more information.
