ASSESS the NEED is a parish-wide school supply drive sponsored by Livingston Parish Assessor Jeff Taylor, in partnership with area businesses and media outlets. Now in our fourteenth year of operation, we’ve raised more than half a million dollars for the students of Livingston Parish!
You can also drop off your donation any weekday at the Livingston Parish Assessor’s Office Monday-Thursday, 7:30 am – 5:30 pm . Money contributions and donated school supplies will be accepted. All donations are tax deductible.
The 2014 edition of Assess the Need generated a lot of news and a lot of support. People want to ensure that children will have the supplies they need in order to successfully complete the school year. This showed through the donations that were made–more than $50,000 in donations were given to more than 2,500 students in Livingston Parish. In the fourteen year history of Assess the Need, the program has raised more than half a million dollars.
