"CHILDREN ARE NOT A DISTRACTION FROM MORE IMPORTANT WORK, THEY ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT WORK"
The Anthony Mayeaux Educators Fund is a grant program established in the honor of Lt. Anthony Mayeaux. This program was created to help what Anthony saw as our greatest assets..children.

Scarlett's "Blankets and Bears Program"
HELPING FIND COMFORT
Scarlett's "Blankets and Bears" program is a Barrans Bears initiative that provides blankets to Shelters for Women and Children, many of whom are fleeing Domestic Violence. Although it doesn't solve the big problem, blankets and bears can as Scarlett so lovingly said, "help mommies stay warm, and help kids feel safe", while living in a shelter.
If you would like to assist us with this program, please contact us at Barransbears@gmail.com or on the Barrans Bears Facebook page!
If you live in Louisiana and would like to donate blankets or bears please contact us and we will arrange to meet with you!
