Fireworks stand raises funds for shelter

DENHAM SPRINGS, LA (WAFB) - An emergency shelter for women and children in Livingston Parish will benefit from your Fourth of July fun.

The Battered Families Shelter, sponsored by Women Outreaching Women, runs the fireworks store at 26852 4-H Club Road in Denham Springs.

In addition to selling fireworks, the store is also selling one-of-a-kind artwork.

"It showcases local artists' work to raise funds for our shelter, and to help out the local artists also," said Andy DeShazer, WOW's housing coordinator.

Proceeds from the store go to fund the Battered Women and Children Shelter in Livingston Parish.
