Members of the middle school cheerleading squad at Episcopal School of Baton Rouge recently created more than 100 care packages for donation to breast cancer patients through the Mary Bird Perkins — Our Lady of the Lake Cancer Center and Woman’s Hospital.

This is the second year Episcopal Middle School students have organized the effort, which doubled in size from last year.
