 Lake Charles Police Captain Nathan Keller obtained access to several school desks which were located at Burton Coliseum on Monday.

After learning the desks were going to be thrown away, Captain Keller contacted Lieutenant Craig Wright, Lake Charles Police Department Neighborhood Patrol Division, for assistance transporting the desks to Little Cypress-Mauriceville Consolidated Independent School District.

Lieutenant Wright and Corporal Timothy Duplechan loaded approximately 85 children’s school desks in a trailer and delivered them to Orange, on Tuesday, where they met with the superintendent of the Little Cypress Mauriceville school district.

Lake Charles Police Officers took a tour of the school which was flooded by Hurricane Harvey.
